If you're commuting to work from Sydney's western or northern suburbs this Tuesday, February 25, morning, get ready for some major delays. Urgent overheard wiring repairs at Hornsby has caused cancellations and delays across the T1 North Shore and T9 Northern lines, with flow-on effects also impacting the T1 Western Line.

To make some of the repairs, Sydney Trains had to turn off the power, which it said wasn't "a quick process"; however, at 7.30am it reported that power had been restored and crews were working hard to "prepare the trains for service".

Passengers on the T1 and T9 lines have been advised to delay their journeys or make alternative travel arrangements if possible, and to check real time apps and listen to announcements if already at the stations.

A limited number of buses are supplementing services between Hornsby and North Sydney. The Central Coast and Newcastle lines are also making additional stops to help ease some of the passenger congestion.

Adding to this morning's delays, a fire safety alarm was activated at Town Hall Station at approximately 7.30am, with no trains stopping at the station. Thankfully, services have now resumed.

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