A group of Restore Passenger Rail protesters have been arrested after blocking Wellington's State Highway One.

The protesters glued themselves to Vivian St at the intersection of Cuba St and were swiftly removed by police within 30 minutes.

Transport Minister Michael Wood says it was good to see them moved on by police and was pleased with the robust response.

"I'm concerned about the disruption that's occurring, I'm concerned that, for example, we've had ambulances that have been held up by these people's actions."
