KiwiRail Network, formerly ONTRACK (Rere Totika in Māori), is the infrastructure arm of KiwiRail. The ONTRACK trading name was introduced in 2004 after the government repurchased all of New Zealand's rail infrastructure from Toll NZ.[3] It does not operate revenue rolling stock. Rick van Barneveld, former head of Transit New Zealand is its General Manager.[1]
