Wellington commuter train services on the Hutt Valley line between Taita and Upper Hutt were suspended briefly today after a vehicle hit a rail overbridge.

Tranz Metro sent out a notification just after midday warning of suspended services but had no further information.

Tranz Metro manager Scott Brooks said a truck hit the Silverstream rail bridge at 11.50am.

"KiwiRail engineers have inspected the bridge, and it has been cleared to reopen for rail services."

Buses replaced services until they returned to normal by 12.50pm.

Emergency services were not called to the accident.
