GLADSTONE — New Jersey Transit says that service along the Gladstone Branch of the Morris and Essex lines is suspended because of emergency repair work.

NJ Transit said Thursday in a statement that service would be suspended for the morning commute and that rail tickets and passes would be cross-honored on Lakeland Buses to the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

NJ Transit will also cross-honor Gladstone Branch tickets and passes on its other rail and bus lines. There has been a great deal of talk among commuters about an issue involving a wall that may have had some issues on the Gladstone line.

NJ Transit told FiOS1 News that a retaining wall at the station is being fixed, which is the reason for the delay.

NJ Transit says the Gladstone Branch will resume regular schedule service around 12:30 p.m.
