SYDNEY has been hit with commuter chaos this morning following the cancellation of several services across the rail network and a fatal motorbike crash on the Anzac Bridge.
Wet weather and a slew of sickies are being blamed for lengthy train delays across the city today as people woke to the cancellation of several services across the Sydney rail network, with transport authorities blaming “an operational issue”.
“Service changes this morning may affect you, due to wet weather and a larger than expected number of staff off sick,” Sydney Trains tweeted today.

Also this morning, a motorcycle rider has died in a crash on Sydney’s Anzac Bridge.
The rider was struck in the eastbound lanes of the bridge just after 7am and died at the scene, police say.
“Anyone with dashcam vision should contact police,” a spokesman for NSW Police told AAP.
