Sydney Rail Repair Plan
The Plan is in response to the recent 12 recommendations made by the expert panel conducting the Sydney Trains Review.
Sydney Trains operates Sydney’s suburban passenger rail network comprising 919km of electrified track and 169 stations, including four stations on the Airport Line, across eight lines.
Each day, 3,200 timetabled services deliver around 720,000 passenger journeys. Sydney Trains is responsible for the management of more than $46 billion in assets, including the maintenance of almost 2,000km of track, 2,134 electric and diesel cars, and over 1,536km of electric wiring.
Sydney Trains has mapped out a large-scale maintenance program that is currently taking place every weekend for approximately the next year, designed to carry out several years' worth of normal maintenance works in that time. The works will cost an estimated $97 million funded out of existing unspent budgets.
