If the start of your long weekend plans include a trip on a train, it may take longer than expected.

A police incident at Redfern Station saw the inner-city train station close for over an hour, which has led to major delays across most of Sydney's train network.

While the station reopened and services were restored around midday on Thursday, April 18, Transport for NSW is reporting that there are still delays across T1 Northern, Western and North Shore Line; T2 Inner West & Leppington Line; T3 Bankstown Line, T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line; T8 Airport & South Line; Blue Mountains Line; Central Coast & Newcastle Line; and South Coast Line.

Those hoping to travel on any of the impacted lines are being told to visit the Transport for NSW website for updates or check indicator screens if they are already at the station.

The SMH is reporting that the closure was prompted by an alleged trespasser, with police then shutting off overhead power to the station.

To stay up-to-date with delays, check the Transport for NSW website and real-time apps.
