Sydney Trains and NSW TrainLink services impacted due to industrial action

You may need to find alternative travel or allow extra travel time if you need to use the train network for essential travel due to planned industrial action on Saturday 25 September

Please don’t travel on the network if you can avoid it, as delays and longer journey times are expected for most of the day.

Trains will run to a reduced frequency or be cancelled on some lines to minimise the impact of the planned disruption, which will see train services restricted to travelling no faster than 60 kilometers per hour and operated to stop at all stations.

Essential travellers who usually travel by train are urged to plan ahead and use alternative transport options including driving and walking or cycling for shorter trips.

The following lines will be affected by these disruptions, including a reduced speed and frequency and stop at all stations;

T5 Cumberland Line services will not operate on Saturday. If you need to travel between Schofields and Leppington will be able to change at Granville to complete your journey.

NSW TrainLink Intercity and Regional services are also affected by this industrial action.

Regular route buses, Sydney Metro, light rail services and ferries will continue to run as normal but are expected to be busier than usual. You can also consider driving to a nearby station commuter car park to have better connections with alternative transport services.

If you are planning to travel on the network this weekend, please also be aware of planned trackwork on some lines, including the City Circle, T2 Inner West & Leppington and the T3 Bankstown Line.

We appreciate the inconvenience this action will cause and encourage customers to please consider alternative options. Sydney Trains has also been notified by the Rail, Tram and Bus Union (RTBU), Professionals Australia and Australian Services Union of planned industrial action to disrupt the network again on Tuesday 28 September. Customers will be provided with updated service impacts early next week.

Please continue to practise good COVID safe etiquette – wear a mask and sit or stand only on a green dot. If you feel unwell, stay home and get tested.

You can plan ahead for alternative travel by using the Trip Planner.
