06 June 2014 4:04PM

Tranz Metro customers are advised to expect some delays to services between Wellington and Johnsonville from Monday 9 June to Thursday 12 June to allow work to begin on replacing rail sleepers on the line.

Track renewal work is an essential part of KiwiRail’s programme to repair and maintain the quality of infrastructure and services across the rail network.

The work is scheduled during the off-peak period, 9am to 3pm, to ensure minimal disruption to Metro services on these days.

The Johnsonville Line will have bus replacing trains from Saturday 14 June to Sunday 15 June so this work to be completed and normal train services will resume in time for customers returning to work on Monday.

More information and updates will be available on the Tranz Metro website at
