The T1 North Shore line in Sydney is continuing to face major delays as of 16:20 (local time) on Friday, August 23, following an early morning mechanical issue at the Town Hall station. Rail officials said a plan is being developed to provide more frequent service during the peak afternoon hours. However, officials have asked residents to delay non-essential travel on the line or consider leaving earlier or later. Travelers are being warned that stopping patterns and platforms may change at short notice. Significant delays are expected to continue over the coming hours, and it is unclear when service will return to normal. Updates can be found on the T1 North Shore social media page.
Major disruptions have been impacting the North Shore line since 05:20 after a train suffered a mechanical issue at Town Hall station. Authorities temporarily closed the line between Town Hall and North Sydney, causing backups to other lines, including the T9 Northern.
Individuals in Sydney are advised to keep abreast of the situation, allow additional time to travel, and consider using alternative routes or modes of transportation.
