A person has been struck by a train in Auckland for the second time today.

One person is in a critical condition after they were hit by a train about 6pm at Middlemore Station.

They have been taken to Middlemore Hospital.

An Auckland Transport spokesman said there were delays on the southern and eastern lines, and part of the line around Middlemore Station was suspended.

He said earlier information that the Onehunga line was suspended was likely to be incorrect.


This morning about 7am, a person died when they were struck by a train near Apirana Ave and Merton Rd.
