Tonight: what do you think should be done about the Ngāruawāhia rail bridge?

On Sunday evening, an 11-year-old girl was killed after being hit by a train. She was on a railway bridge in Ngaruawahia, Waikato at approximately 6pm.

KiwiRail says it's done a lot in recent years to prevent tragedies at rail crossings, but "obviously" has to do more.

KiwiRail chief executive Peter Reidy said while it was too early to comment on the "specifics" of this latest incident, they are aware the Ngāruawāhia bridge is a black spot for train accidents.
