2:46 pm on 10 June 2010

A gas leak in the West Auckland suburb of New Lynn that caused the evacuation of some shops and buildings on Thursday afternoon has been fixed.

Police say an excavator ruptured a gas main near the railway line at the intersection of Totara and Rankin Avenues about 1.30pm.

Trains though the area were stopped and several roads closed while the leak was stopped.

Police say all cordons have been lifted.
