Disruption to Metro Services

06 October 2014 4:04PM

Adverse weather in Wellington this afternoon has disrupted Metro services.

A fallen tree has damaged overhead electrical lines on the network near Taita causing a power failure. KiwiRail teams are on-site to repair the damage and restore electricity.

As a result, Metro services on the Melling Line are cancelled and Hutt Valley customers are being bus replaced between Petone and Upper Hutt. The same issue will also cause some delays to services between Wellington and Masterton because of the proximity of that line.
