Aucklanders face some train delays

Commuters will experience delays on the eastern train line in Auckland this morning after a vehicle clipped a rail bridge in Glen Innes.

Police were called to Apirana Ave about 9am after a truck hit the overpass.
Inspector Ian Brooker said nobody was injured.

Auckland Transport had sent crew to inspect the bridge for damage and taxis were called to collect stranded passengers from Glen Innes train station.

Spokesman Mark Hannan said train services were still running but would be delayed for the next hour.

It would affect the eastern line only and services would be rerouted through Newmarket, he said.
