Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The NSW public rail network will halt for several hours on Tuesday when transport workers strike amid an ongoing industrial dispute with the state government, prompting warnings of mass service disruptions.
The Rail, Tram and Bus Union on Monday confirmed train staff would stop work on the regional and city rail networks between 9am and 1pm.

Transport for NSW chief operations officer Howard Collins warned the thousands of essential workers still using the train network to avoid public transport on Tuesday if they could or expect significant delays for much of the day.
“Those essential people who are travelling tomorrow, either you travel very early in the morning, expect some disruption around 7am, if not please find alternative means to travel,” he said.
“Tomorrow, if you can, please avoid using public transport for the majority of the day.”
RTBU general secretary Alex Claassens said Tuesday’s network stoppage was the culmination of weeks of industrial action, sparked by disputes over pay and workplace safety with the NSW government.
“We don’t want to have to take action at all, but we’ve been left with no choice,” he said.
“We can’t sit back and let the safety of workers and the community be put at risk, nor can we allow the disrespect of members to continue.”
