Temporary changes to Melling train services this week

Train services between Melling and Petone will be replaced by buses from 9am Wednesday (10 December) for the rest of the week.

Greater Wellington Regional Council apologises for the inconvenience. The closure is required to enable the continuation of a testing programme commenced after the incident at Melling Station on 27 May 2014 when a train overshot the platform.

The testing is being done this week because all the required resources will not be available over the Christmas holiday period and access to the network is limited by major maintenance works. 

From 9.00am Wednesday until 6.30pm Friday evening a shuttle service will run between Melling, Western Hutt and Petone stations. Trains will run as normal between Petone and Wellington.
