RAIL Tram and Bus Union members will take industrial action from 8pm Monday to 4am Tuesday in a continuing campaign for improved pay and conditions.
The action will disrupt regional rail services through to Tuesday morning and have flow on effects to passenger and freight services across the state.
In order to ensure safety and to allow time to return trains to depots and stabling yards, NSW Trainlink said it will need to suspend some Intercity and Regional services from as early as 3.30pm on Monday and resume from 5.30am on Tuesday.
There will be flow on effects later in the week as this is NSW Trainlink’s busiest week of the year with many services nearly fully booked and customers may not be able to switch to a different day.
Train commuters are advised to find alternative transport and avoid unnecessary travel. Public transport customers should visit transportnsw.info for the latest information and to consider alterative transport options.
