Work in Erskineville

Infrastructure improvements are being made across Sydney's rail network to provide customers with more reliable, high capacity turn up and go services as part of the More Trains, More Services program.

These include modifications to track, signalling, stabling facilities and station platforms between Sydney CBD and the South Coast.

Why we work at outside standard construction hours

To maintain a high standard of safety and reliability across the transport network, Sydney Trains carries out track work outside of peak times, mostly overnight or on weekends to minimise or avoid disruption to commuter services.
Sections of the tracks are closed so maintenance crews can work safely and efficiently while fixing and upgrading the track and surrounding infrastructure.

We schedule the majority of our night work to coincide with Sydney Trains' track work periods, where no passenger services are running, to help ensure the safety of our construction team.

Where possible, we restrict our night work to no more than two consecutive nights per week to minimise disruption to local residents.
