27 February 2015 10:10AM

Tranz Metro services on the Kapiti Line between Wellington and Porirua have returned to normal scheduling.

KiwiRail acknowledges that the disruption to customers has been significant after a fallen tree damaged overhead traction cables causing a power outage on the line yesterday afternoon. We thank customers for their patience.

Our staff have worked as quickly as possible to remove the tree and replace the damaged electrical cable.

Bus replacements were also provided between those stations and our focus has to been to get services up and running again as quickly as we can and minimise further inconvenience for passengers.

Tranz Metro will be sending text and email alerts to passengers and they are advised to check the website – – for more information.
