A track fault has closed Auckland's central railway station, making rush-hour travel a little more trying for frustrated commuters.
Auckland Transport (AT) advised commuters to allow extra time to get into the CBD on Thursday morning due to the temporary closure of Britomart Station.
In an update at 12:30pm, AT confirmed the track fault is ongoing and the station remains closed.
"We will ensure to notify customers if we receive any updates," the agency said in a tweet.
All train services to Britomart are currently stopping at Newmarket Station. The Onehunga line between the city centre and Penrose has been cancelled.
Rail replacement buses are currently operating between Newmarket and Britomart.
Passengers who typically use the train network should expect delays and cancellations, AT said.
Further updates will be provided as they become available.
As reported by the New Zealand Herald, queues are beginning to form on Remuera Rd outside the entrance to Newmarket Train Station, with masked passengers observing physical distancing while waiting to take a bus into Auckland CBD.
