Deviation of the Main North Line on 2021-05-25

Posted by NZ Rail Maps on 29 May 2021 in English (English)

Kiwirail Networks opened the deviation of the Main North Line between 262 and 263 km (Tunnel 21) and announced it on the 2021-05-25 on their website. A way has been added to OHM showing the closed section of track.

I’m new to OHM but have extensive experience drawing my own maps in a GIS so this is the first edit I have made to OHM.
