The Auckland Regional Transport Authority (ARTA) advises that on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 August a revised timetable
will be operating for all stations between Papakura and Otahuhu on the Southern Line to allow for track maintenance and
improvement work on this part of the rail network. A bus replacement service will be in place for all stations between
Homai and Otahuhu.
Normal train fares will apply for the entire journey.
Passengers should look out for the RAIL BUS sign at affected stations.

• Puhinui: the corner of Kenderdine and Puhinui Roads
• Papatoetoe: Shirley Road

Disruptions to passengers are expected to be minimal. Passengers are however advised to check timetables carefully and
allow more time for their journey, as arrival and departure times will differ.
