Ownership of former locomotive depot land at Linwood.
This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Patrick Dunford to read a recent response and update the status.
From: Patrick Dunford
Please advise if any of the former Linwood Locomotive Depot land remains in Kiwirail ownership. Historically this has included several different areas of land bounded by Wilsons Road, Ensors Road and the Main South Line corridor. These are as follows:
1. Land facing onto Ensors Road (former steam and electric locomotive sheds) some of which has been occupied by Department of Corrections
2. Land accessed from Ensors Road which formerly had an entrance way from Laurence Street and contains the former locomotive depot amenities buildings. It's understood Kiwirail currently occupies these buildings.
3. Land which partly fronts onto Ensors Road and partly onto Wilsons Road. This site has contained a number of facilities including locomotive and railcar sheds at the Ensors Road end, and heading back towards Wilsons Road it used to contain turntables, coaling watering for steam engines and other servicing functions as well as storage sidings. This area is now almost all occupied by Fulton Hogans depot except for a small part accessed off Wilsons Road apparently still used by Kiwirail.
