One of the company’s original ‘flagstone contracts, MMS Group has worked in Wellington’s rail corridor for nearly 20 years. Wellington’s rail network has been a commuting mainstay since the 1920s. Wellington’s rail network is used primarily by commuters travelling to and from the central city — all lines converge on Wellington Railway Station.
There are two major rail corridors in Wellington. The North Island Main Trunk runs along the western coastline, passing through Porirua and Paraparaumu to Waikanae on the Kapiti Coast; the Wairarapa Line runs along the edge of Wellington Harbour and then up the Hutt Valley, passing through both Lower and Upper Hutt. Less frequent services continue through the rural Wairarapa, stopping at a number of small towns before terminating at Masterton. There are also the Johnsonville Line in the north of Wellington and the Melling Line on the western side of Lower Hutt.
MMS Group has 5 dedicated crews that carry out scheduled cleaning and minor maintenance works throughout the network.
