For the third day running a track fault is causing commuter pain, with a raft of train services heading into Auckland city from western suburbs cancelled this morning.
And it's not all plain sailing on the motorways either, with billowing smoke shrouding a section of the Southern Motorway after a car caught fire.
Auckland Transport says the ongoing track fault between Grafton and Morningside has meant eight services between 5.47am and 8.07am will not operate.
Since last Thursday commuters have been warned train services on the western line during morning and afternoon peak times would be cut due to a speed restriction.
