IMPORTANT TRANSPORT FOR NSW UPDATE: DELAYS ON SYDNEY TRAIN AND NSW TRAINLINK INTERCITY SERVICES
18 Aug 2018
TRANSPORT FOR NSW: Trains services across the Sydney Trains network are being impacted as a result of an IT issue across all transport agencies.
This has affected key operating systems that provide visibility of trains and their locations. Technicians are working to resolve the IT issue with systems starting to return to operation across the transport network.
The safety of our customers and staff remains our highest priority. Our staff are out on the network to ensure services continue to operate safely.
However, there are some delays across the network. We apologise to customers caught up by this issue and would like to assure them that we are working hard to maintain services.
Buses are supplementing services at some stations including Campbelltown, Glenfield, Penrith, Olympic Park and Richmond.
Sydney Trains is operating special services to Olympic Park from 2pm for customers attending the Bledisloe Cup and AFL this evening.
Direct services will operate from Central to Olympic Park, in addition to the T7 Olympic Park Line.
Due to trackwork bus services will also be provided to Central Coast & Newcastle Line customers.
Sydney Olympic Park Major Event Buses will start running between 3:05pm and 3:45pm, depending on the route.
We encourage you to leave early if attending events and allow extra time when travelling today.
