Southern Line and Onehunga Line train services in Auckland have been suspended due to a sudden death on railway tracks near the Remuera Railway Station.

It has been confirmed that both police and emergency services are at the scene and were notified of the death at roughly 11:30am on Monday.

"Police will be in attendance at the scene for some time and train services may be disrupted," police said in a statement.

As of 12:55pm, Auckland Transport (AT) confirmed that disruptions to the Onehunga and Southern Line services are expected to continue into the afternoon peak.

It advises those commuting between Newmarket and Ellerslie to catch the 70 bus and those travelling between Otahuhu and Ellerslie to take the 321 service.

"Limited rail bus replacements are operating between Britomart and Otahuhu stations," AT said in a tweet.

"Southern Line services are operating via the Eastern Line, Onehunga Line Services are operating between Onehunga and Penrose only. 

"No Southern Line services are operating via Remuera, Greenlane, Ellerslie and Penrose."

Scheduled buses are accepting all train tickets and AT HOP cards, according to a text update by the transportation service Transdev.

The death will be referred to the Coroner and no further information is available at this stage.
