Normal train services have resumed after a car accident near the railway line in Waikanae halted peak-hour rail services between Waikanae and Paraparaumu around 5pm today.

Emergency services attended at the scene, on the corner of Te Moana Rd and Main Rd.

Police said a car had rolled and hit a traction pole. As a precautionary measure the line was closed temporarily.

A Tranz Metro spokeswoman said buses had replaced trains between Waikanae and Paraparaumu until the accident was cleared around 5.45pm.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
