Maintenance and construction work

Periodic maintenance and construction work ensures that we can deliver safe, reliable train services to our customers.

Because some work requires road closures, the use of noisy equipment or other impacts, we let our neighbours know of planned work well in advance.

We understand that maintenance and construction work will have an impact on you and your neighbours. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

From most types of work, we will distribute a 'notice of work' flyer directly to nearby residents one or two weeks in advance. For emergency works, we may be unable to distribute a notice before undertaking the work.

Plan your trip at transportnsw.info to see if this upcoming work will affect how you travel.

Our work and the environment

Some noisy works take place overnight and on weekends. This is to ensure we can complete our work as quickly as possible and minimise disruptions for our customers.

We have a responsibility to remove trees that pose a threat to rail or electrical infrastructure, or obstruct access or sighting distances within the rail corridor. Where possible, we plant appropriate species, on site or nearby, to offset any trees removed.

If you have any concerns about our impact on the environment, or would like to report noise or other pollution, call the Sydney Trains & NSW TrainLink Environmental Feedback Line on 1300 656 999.
