Traffic and weather forecast in Auckland for April 21, 2022
Southern Line rail services between Papakura and Pukekohe have been canceled until further notice, Auckland Transport said in an update Thursday morning.
Meanwhile, two rail replacement buses run between Papakura and Pukekohe.
Auckland Transport spokesman Briar Hubbard said the disruption was due to a problem with the Te Huia train, which occurred between Paerata and Papakura.
Auckland’s highways are mostly smooth as of 9:50 a.m. except for an area of congestion around Albany on the Northern Highway.
