A damning report says the vital rail link to the West Coast cannot last more than two years without major repairs and investment. The report by Australian consultants Kellogg Brown and Root (KBR), commissioned by the Land Transport Safety Authority (LTSA) last year, says the Midland Line between the West Coast and Canterbury is not "fit for purpose" beyond the immediate future.
In another report for coal company Solid Energy, the same firm estimates $70 million in deferred maintenance is needed to bring the line up to scratch. The Midland Line through the Otira Tunnel is the lifeline of Hokitika-based Westland Milk Products and the world famous TranzAlpine passenger train.
