  1. What are the plans going forward, will you get to Riccarton station site and rebuild that or are there plans to try and reopen the tunnel, i assume this would cost prohibitive.

  2. The plan is to extent towards Riccarton Junction station. This is a long term plan, with shorter term aims of running to near the southern portal of Whitrope tunnel and extending the current running line south into Ladelhope cutting. The tunnel as you correctly state would be hugely expensive to restore so is currently not in our plans, other than to push for external bodies to repair it.
