Auckland commuters continue to face widespread delays and cancellations after a track fault closed the city's central railway station.

The Onehunga line is now cancelled between Britomart and Penrose and all trains travelling into Britomart are stopping at Newmarket after a track fault at Britomart Station earlier today.

Auckland Transport says Britomart Station in the CBD is temporarily shut and passengers using trains should expect delays.

Commuters were being warned to allow extra time to get into the city.

All trains across the network would be stopping at Newmarket where passengers would be able to catch rail replacement buses into Britomart.

This morning queues were starting to form on Remuera Rd outside the entrance to Newmarket Train Station with masked passengers observing social distancing while they waited to be taken into the city by bus.
