A train track fault is causing widespread delays for commuters using Auckland's train service this morning.

Some services have been terminated at Newmarket and The Strand, and the Eastern Line is affected as well.

Passengers are being transferred onto buses.

Auckland Transport took to Twitter this morning and told its followers a track fault at Britomart was the cause of the delays.

It is the second major delay in just over a week. A fault between Britomart and Newmarket caused headaches last Thursday morning.

It's not clear yet as to how long the delays will be in effect.

More to come.
