No trains will be running in Auckland between 9.30am and 2pm today, impacting a total of 105 services.

A number of Southern and Western line train services outside of these times will also have disruptions.

Those travelling on a 9.30am train from Britomart will be on the last train out and the last train to arrive at Britomart before the meeting gets into the station at 10am.

Rail and Maritime Transport Union members are attending the meeting between 11am and 1pm but the disruptions extend to two hours either side of the meeting.

Staff will be at train stations during the disruptions to help anyone with their transport queries.
