Track work disrupts trains to Sydney

TRACKWORK will be taking place from this week on the South Coast Line unti Friday  July 13.
Buses will replace most weekday trains between Wollongong and Waterfall for two weeks. Direct trains will continue to operate during peak periods in peak direction only.
Buses will also replace weekend services between Port Kembla and Wollongong and between Dapto and Central. Trains will continue to operate to an amended timetable between Bomaderry (Nowra) and Dapto.
Chief Operating Officer Tony Eid says RailCorp is investing approximately $6.5 million in major maintenance and upgrade works to improve the safety and reliability of services travelling on the South Coast Line.
“The work will include rebuilding the track between Corrimal and North Wollongong to make it more reliable by replacing timber sleepers with concrete ones and installing new rail and ballast.
“Our advice to customers is to plan ahead during trackwork and to allow additional time for their journey, particularly during weekdays when many will be travelling to and from work.
“We are committed to providing a more reliable network to customers and would like to thank them for their continued patience while this trackwork takes place,” Mr Eid said.
