A public transport lobby group wants land for a future rail link to Auckland airport to be secured a rail service to the airport is planned but no land has been designated.
A rail service to the airport sits in long-term plans 10 to 20 years away, but the Campaign for Public Transport said there is no land yet designated.
Convenor of the lobby group Cameron Pitches said that move is needed soon, as tunnelling will already be needed near the airport because of new building.
Mr Pitches has told Auckland Council's infrastructure committee, that little has happened since a 10,000-strong petition 6 years ago, called for the airport rail link.
He wants rail extended from Onehuna to the Mangere township, as an early step halfway to the airport.
Committee chair Mike Lee said progress is being made, but too slowly.
A rail link is part of the council's thirty year vision - the 'Auckland Plan' - and is due some time between 2022 and 2032.
