Please see below a list of all the planned disruptions by date.

Saturday 27 January

Sunday 28 January

Monday 29 January

  • ALL Sydney Trains, Intercity and NSW Regional Services are CANCELLED. No passenger rail services will operate in NSW.

Please do be aware that further disruptions beyond those envisaged may be possible. Allow for significant extra travel time and plan alternative routes.

This is due to the actions of our state government and its Transport Minister, who refuse to agree on a fair wage and conditions for our train drivers. We should support our train drivers and condemn this current government for its heartless treatment. If a fair agreement can be made, much of this disruption will be averted.

Some schools (including SACS) have announced that they will not be opening on Monday 29 January if the strike goes ahead. Please check with individual school for more information.
