Sydney trains experience major delays as 'urgent repairs' causes chaosSome Sydney train services are experiencing major delays of up to an hour, cancellations and frequent stoppages because of urgent overhead wiring repairs at Wynyard station in the CBD.
The issues initially began last night, with stations clogged by lines of waiting commuters, and have continued into today.
Sydney Trains confirmed in a post to Twitter that services between Wynyard and Central have been suspended in both directions because of the work.
It also warned that indicator boards, real time apps and train running information may be unavailable or incorrect.
Services on the city's T1 North Shore line are understood to have been significantly affected by the work.
Some of the services have also been cancelled or terminated at earlier stations, and various trains have experienced infrequent stopping between stations as the problem is dealt with.
Sydney Trains has urged commuters to "delay non-essential travel, utilise local buses or make alternate travel arrangements if possible".
Some commuters affected by the travel delays took to social media today to voice their anger at the delays, with some saying they had boarded the wrong trains because of the incorrect information available.
"People are on their phones in the Sydney Trains quiet carriage, cancelling appointments, calling their employer to say they'll be late," one commuter posted.
"Absolutely stuck of being stuck on a train because of delays. Absolute disgrace for a major city," another said.
"Making everyone late and waste their weekends all the time."
NSW Labor has called on Sydney Trains and NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance to assure commuters that trains will be running to normal timetable by this afternoon with major sporting events taking place.
