A number of ferry services across Auckland have been cancelled this morning due to mechanical and technical issues.
The Bayswater service leaving Auckland at 7.55am and departing Bayswater at 8.05am was cancelled due to mechanical issues. Breakdowns have also resulted in a number of services between both Beach Haven and Hobsonville and Auckland being scrapped between 6.30am and 7.10am.
The 7am Gulf Harbour ferry was also cancelled initially citing infrastructure issues. However, an AT spokesperson later confirmed the affected ferry had broken down.
Yesterday, during the evening rush hour, Fullers was forced to cancel sailings from the CBD to Hobsonville as one of the two ferries on the run again suffered mechanical issues. That followed a July 8 incident that saw a ferry smash into the Hobsonville Point wharf after a mechanical failure saw the captain lose control of the vessel.

The Te Huia Auckland to Hamilton commuter train has also been disrupted today after two carriages in the train got separated from the rest of the train while travelling between Papakura and Hamilton.
As a result today's 5.46am service from Hamilton was cancelled and the 6.25pm Te Huia service from Papakura would be replaced by buses.
The 6.28am service to Papakura and 4.42pm train to Frankton are unaffected.
