Rail Repair Plan trackwork kept to a minimum this long weekend
Sydney Trains has minimised the impact of Rail Repair Plan trackwork so passengers can travel around easily this long weekend.
There will be more than 830 workers on site removing 38 high-priority defects and repairing 28km of track.
On the T2 Inner West & Leppington Line and T5 Cumberland Line, there will be a short disruption on Saturday morning from 6.30am to 10.40am, when buses will replace trains between Cabramatta and Granville.
Buses will continue to replace trains between Lidcombe and Sydenham on the T3 Bankstown Line until 5 October for the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project enabling works. Trains will run to a changed timetable between Liverpool and the City via Regents Park, and between Sydenham and the City.
For football fans with tickets to the NRL Grand Final at Sydney Olympic Park on Sunday 1 October, 136 special event trains will be running from Central, Penrith and Blacktown to Sydney Olympic Park. Passengers on the T2 and T5 Lines can also change at Lidcombe for a train to the stadium.
On Monday 2 October, buses will replace trains all day between Olympic Park and Lidcombe on the T7 Olympic Park Line.
For our passengers on the South Coast Line, buses will replace trains between Port Kembla and Wollongong for the duration of the long weekend. Buses do not run to the train timetable. Customers connecting with trains at Wollongong may need to catch an earlier bus to ensure they meet their train connection.
Passengers are encouraged to allow for extra travel time and plan ahead by visiting transportnsw.info or using trip planning apps on their mobile devices.
