Buses to replace Pukekohe trains this weekend

Buses will be replacing trains between Papakura and Pukekohe on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 May so repair work can take place on the rail line.

Recent wet weather caused two slips on the line near Paerata on 5 April and again on 12 May. KiwiRail has been called in to urgently attend to these slips.

Auckland Transport has agreed to replace trains with buses so work can be done.

KiwiRail have had a geotechnical specialist on site, who will be working to prevent any further slips.
