Sydney train delays: Town Hall wiring issue stops Central to Wynyard trains as commuters warned

Commuter chaos as wiring issue sees Sydney’s train network brought to its knees with widespread cancellations and delays

  • Sydney trains that ran between the T1 and T9 lines were stopped at Town Hall  
  • A NSW Transport spokeswoman said the ‘wiring issue’ has been resolved 
  • But the flow-on from that may affect afternoon commuters on those lines 
  • Other routes affected across the city network could be the T2, T3 and T8 routes

A major train route has been disrupted after a wiring issue forced the line to be halted with afternoon Sydney commuters warned to expect delays. 

Sydney trains running on the T1 and T9 lines and between Central and Wynyard ground to a halt on Tuesday afternoon after an ‘overhead wiring’ issue forced engineers to rush to Town Hall Station and urgently fix the problem. 

A NSW Transport spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia the issue was resolved after 4pm with trains slowly getting back on track.

The spokeswoman warned travellers to expect delays on these lines, including the T2, T3 and T8 lines as a flow-on effect. 

Sydney Trains urgently warned customers of the problem on Tuesday.

‘Allow extra travel time due to urgent overhead wiring repairs at Town Hall,’ a Twitter update said.

‘Stops and platform may change at short notice, check transport apps, information screens and listen for announcements.’
