Fridays are great, except for when your morning trip to work takes much longer than expected. That's the scenario many Sydney commuters are facing this Friday, August 23, as the train network is hit by major delays because of a mechanical issue at Town Hall.

No trains were running between Town Hall and North Sydney for over three hours while an electrical crew worked to repair a loose hatch on a train, which was close to overhead wiring. While the mechanical issue was repaired at around 8.45am, the partial T1 line closure has caused heavy delays across the T2 Inner West & Leppington, T3 Bankstown, T8 Airport & South Lines and T9 Northern Lines.

Commuters travelling from the city to North Sydney are being told to catch buses 290, M20, 343 or 263 from Town Hall. Special charter buses are also running from Clarence Street at Wynard Station, stopping at Milsons Point and North Sydney Stations.

Travellers on the T2, T3, T8 and T9 lines are being told to allow for plenty of extra travel, listen to announcements and check indicator boards. Commuters on the ground in the inner west are reporting extremely long lines for buses as commuters avoid the train.
