The future of rail is closer than you think.
ERT is a truly 24/7 rail network system. It’s simple: rail built with less pieces requires less maintenance. Less maintenance means less downtime. Less downtime means more trains on tracks. And that means a safer, more reliable and cost-effective network. ERT is a reliable and safe track solution. A proven efficient system that offers best value and comes with a host of benefits.

Downer, as part of a joint venture, Link Alliance, are delivering three of Auckland’s City Rail Link projects, the largest transport infrastructure project ever undertaken in New Zealand.
The City Rail Link is a 3.45 kilometre twin-tunnel underground rail link, up to 42 metres below the city centre. This is transforming the downtown Britomart Transport Centre into a two-way through-station, that better connects the Auckland rail network. The City Rail Link is due for completion in 2024.
