Widespread Delays Expected Across Sydney's Train Network for Monday Afternoon Peak Hour

While the sun is shining and the rain has stopped (for now), commuters hoping to get home via public transport this afternoon, Monday, February 10, should still prepare for some delays. Record-breaking rain over the weekend — which, thankfully, saw dam levels swell by more than 20 percent — has caused havoc for train and Sydney Metro services over the past 24 hours, with flooding, fallen trees, infrastructure damage and landslips leading to cancellations and major delays across the networks.

Transport for NSW is telling commuters to allow for plenty of extra travel time with delays and service changes expected to continue through Monday peak hour. A landslip in Artarmon is causing delays on the T1 North Shoe & Western Line and T9 Northern Line, with trains running at a reduced frequency between Berowra and Hornsby. Buses may supplement some services.

No trains are running in either direction on the T5 Cumberland Line, with TfNSW advising commuters to change at Granville to complete their journeys, and buses are replacing trains on the T7 Olympic Park Line between Lidcombe and Olympic Park due to flooding.

Ongoing delays are happening across the T2 Inner West & Leppington Line, T3 Bankstown Line, T4 Eastern Suburbs & Illawarra Line and T8 Airport & South Line, too.

Sydney Metro hasn't gotten off scot-free, either, with buses replacing metro services between Chatswood and Macquarie University due to flooding at Chatswood Station. It's suggested commuters catch the T9 Northern Line to Epping, then change onto the Metro.

Whatever line you're hoping to catch, it's suggested you allow for plenty of travel time, check alerts on the Transport for NSW website, keep and eye on real-time apps and check screens when at the station.

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