Trackwork for the T1 North Shore and Metro North West

From Monday 3 October, there will be rail closures on the North Shore and Metro North West Lines to allow essential upgrade and maintenance work to be undertaken.

The T1 North Shore Line will be closed between Gordon and North Sydney for upgrade works from Monday 3 to Friday 7 October 2022. The line will be closed from Hornsby to Wynyard on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October 2022.

Trackwork will be carried out on the Metro North West Line between North Ryde and Chatswood from Monday 3 to Friday 7 October 2022, and from Tallawong to Chatswood on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October 2022.

Lower patronage on these services during school holidays will minimise impacts to commuters and provides an opportunity to efficiently carry out important upgrades to the metro as well as essential safety work including signals and track inspections.

Commuters who use these rail lines are encouraged to make alternative travel arrangements, where possible and plan ahead as limited replacement bus services will be running.
 
Replacement buses may be impacted by COVID-related staff shortages. All possible arrangements will be put in place to minimise the impacts to the services, however, cancellations or delays may occur.

Trains on the T1 Western, T9 Northern and Central Coast & Newcastle lines will run to a changed timetable and stopping pattern due to trackwork on the T1 North Shore Line.

You may need to change trains to continue your journey.  

Parking restrictions will also be in place on roads around the affected train stations for temporary bus zones.

Please make sure you plan ahead.
