  • More AM peak hour services to the City for customers at Mount Kuring-gai, Mount Colah, Hornsby and all stations from Wahroonga to Roseville.
  • Customers who catch trains from Gordon to Roseville will also benefit from more services across most of the day.

T1 Northern Line

  • Current services between Hornsby and the City via Chatswood will be replaced by limited stop services via Strathfield. These services will start or terminate at Central during peak times.  At all other times, trains will directly connect to Wynyard, Town Hall and North Shore stations via Strathfield and Central.
  • Most Normanhurst to Cheltenham customers travelling to the CBD in the morning peak will have faster or similar journey times compared with today.
  • Two extra services per hour in the morning peak and a doubling of trains in the evening peak for Rhodes, Meadowbank and West Ryde.
  • All peak hour services to operate as eight car trains to improve capacity and comfort for all T1 Northern Line customers

Central Coast and Newcastle Line

  • Double the number of express services operating to and from the Sydney CBD via Strathfield during peak times, with an express train every 15 minutes instead of every 30 minutes.
  • Customers will still have the option to catch direct trains to and from Sydney CBD via the North Shore, with no change to the current number of peak services.
  • The current trial of a fast train service operating between Newcastle and Sydney will continue.

T8 Airport & South Line

  • Revesby will receive two more Sydney CBD bound express services running via Airport Stations in the morning peak.
