Wellington train cancellations cause commuter chaos

From Morning Report, 7:40 am on 3 July 2019

Thousands of commuters are stuck in traffic or stranded this morning after a freight train derailed in the Wellington railyards on Tuesday night closing almost all lines into the capital.

There are no train services in and out of Wellington on the Hutt, Kapiti, Melling and Wairarapa lines. Metlink says it has been unable to source bus replacements.

The General Manager for the Public Transport Group of Greater Wellington Regional Council is Greg Pollock. He joins us with the latest.
