Auckland train delays after Otahuhu fault

10:30 am on 30 November 2015

Trains in Auckland have started moving again after being suspended on three of the city's four lines.

A fault on a train at Otahuhu at 8.16am shut down the Southern, Eastern and Onehunga lines - to the frustration of travellers.

Rail shuttles were put on between Onehunga and Penrose and on the Eastern line between Otahuhu & Orakei and The Strand.

Auckland Transport said it had to reset the Southern and Eastern lines and services were in a "catch up" phase.

The agency was expecting all services to return to normal by 11am.

The train that broke down has been recovered.
