Inner West Train Line Closed

Thursday, 3rd January, 2019

Sydney Trains is to undertake essential maintenance works on the Inner West Railway Line during the weekend of the 19 and 20 January 2019. The possession works result in the cancellation of all Inner West trains between Central and Strathfield, for the weekend period.

The Temporary Bus Service routes operating are:

  1. Route 50T2   Lewisham, Petersham, Stanmore then Central and return
  2. Route 53T2   Strathfield all to Summer Hill, Newtown then Central and return
  3. Route 54T2   Strathfield all to Central (bypassing Macdonaldtown) and return
  4. Route 55T2   Macdonaldtown then Redfern and return (Minibus)

The routes are referred to as Routes 50T2, 53T2, 54T2 and 55T2. 

Buses must form the Service provision, with the single exception of Route 55T2, where Minibuses must be provided.

Accessible Service (DDA) Requirements

On both days, a minimum of 80% of all Service trips, in each direction, must be wheelchair accessible. The single exception, is Route 55T2, where non-accessible Minibuses, may operate.   

To clarify, Route 55T2 is unique in that it Services Macdonaldtown Station, a non-wheelchair accessible station. Therefore, there is no expectation for Sydney Trains to operate an accessible Service to this station.
