Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
COMMUTERS preparing to head home across Sydney were told “all trains are stationary” shortly before 4pm on Thursday.
Services across the network were struck down due to what Sydney Trains labelled “urgent signal equipment repairs at Central”.
The North Shore Line, Northern Line, Inner West Line, Leppington Line, Bankstown Line, Airport Line and Western Line were all experiencing delays, Sydney Trains said.
Seven News reported that Wynyard train station had been “shut down” and commuters reported station platforms had been “locked down” with barricades to prevent overcrowding.
Angry passengers took to Twitter to share their experiences as they were stranded on platforms.
“Great. 4pm train from North Sydney stuck on platform,” one wrote.
“Why is Liverpool bound train stuck just before Central?” another wrote.
“One word for Sydney trains: ‘Incompetent’,” another wrote.
Commuter Shane Miles tweeted at 4pm saying “not a single train is moving around the City Circle”.
At 4.30 he tweeted sarcastically that his commute “gets better”.
“My train was just cancelled midway between stations. Just what we needed. One FEWER trains going west in peak hour.”
