Auckland Transport released an update this afternoon saying the problem with the signals was resolved and trains to and from Pukekohe would be operating as usual.
The Post Newspaper was contacted by a number of public transport users regarding Pukekohe station.
Train-goers last night and this morning were unable to use rail services with Auckland Transport putting on bus services to Papakura station.
It was thought that station building, which is more than 100 years old had been condemned, making the station unusable, however Mark Hannan from Auckland Transport says this is not the case.
“A weather related crack has been found in the signal box and it has been closed until checked by structural engineers,” he says.
“The signals could not be operated, so in the meantime buses and taxis were used to shuttle passengers to Papakura.
“We apologise for this.”
A statement on their website said, “We’d like to thank our customers for their patience. Auckland Transport and its partners KiwiRail and Transdev are committed to ensuring the safety of our passengers and staff.”
