TRAIN services have been disrupted by the impact of the extreme weather affecting the state, with more disruptions possible as rainfall continues over coming days.
The South Coast Line service has been replaced by buses where possible between Thirroul and Waterfall due to flooding at Coalcliff.
NSW Trains Chief Executive Dale Merrick said the severe weather system has caused widespread flooding and damage with services being affected across the rail network.
“Our first priority is always safety. We ask our customers to postpone their journey if possible or allow for additional travel time. We want to ensure everyone arrives at their destination safely,” he said.
“We ask customers to check to see if their regional coach or train service is affected. While some delays and cancellations cannot be avoided at this time, every effort is being made to maintain services and provide customers with safe alternatives.”
Mr Merrick advised disruptions are expected to continue with further heavy rainfall predicted along the east coast over coming days.
“We advise customers that some services are running to an altered timetable and buses will replace services where possible.
“Every effort is being made to continue services and we appreciate everyone’s patience as we work alongside emergency services to respond to incidents and restore services as quickly as possible.”
Customers are advised to check transportnsw.info for the latest information or call 13 22 32 to change or cancel a booking.
