Trackwork is carried out on an ongoing basis to maintain the safety, reliability, and efficiency of the Sydney Trains network. Trackwork may affect how you travel so allow plenty of extra travel time and plan ahead. Check travel alerts or use the Trip Planner.

Sydney Ferries are a great way to get around the city, but services are very popular and may reach capacity, especially on weekends. Plan your trip ahead and allow plenty of extra travel time or consider the alternative transport options available.

Milsons Point and Pyrmont villages are easily accessible by ferry with wharves in short walking distance of the village sites. Remaining villages are best accessed by train or bus.

For ferry wharf locations and timetables, visit transportnsw.info – ferry. For ferry service disruption information check travel alerts.

The best way to get to the Pyrmont village is by bus as Light rail services will be replaced by buses due to trackwork.

Trackwork

From 00:30, Saturday 27 October through until 06:00, Monday 29 October, buses will replace light rail services between Central and Dulwich Hill in both directions to allow for essential trackwork. For more information visit transportnsw.info.

Due to access constraints, buses are unable to safely stop or pick up at Capitol Square, Exhibition Centre (running towards Dulwich Hill) and Pyrmont Bay light rail stops. Customers needing to access these stops will need to do so by foot, the nearest stops are within short walking distance. For more details, see trackwork service alerts.

For light rail service disruption information, check travel alerts or plan your trip using the Trip Planner.

There are no full road closures in place along the course route so participants should take extra care, especially when crossing major roads.

A lane closure will be in place from 07:30 to 16:00 in Lane Cove on River Road eastbound from the Lane Cove Country Club to Greenwich Hospital to accommodate additional pedestrians on the footpath.

Drivers should also exercise caution and keep an eye out for walkers, as there will larger groups of pedestrians walking along footpaths on key roads.
