What's happening


RailCorp is improving the safety and reliability of the CityRail network by investing $1.7 million to carry out various upgrading activities on the Carlingford Line.

We will be rebuilding track between Rosehill and Clyde, replacing timber sleepers with concrete sleepers and installing new rail and ballast.

Track reconstruction works provide long-term benefits by improving the reliability of train services, particularly during the warmer months. Tracks have a tendency to expand in heat and trains are required to slow down to maintain safety. A heavier and more modern, concrete-sleepered track means trains can operate at normal speeds - even in higher temperatures.

Concrete sleepers also have a longer life span, reducing the need for ongoing maintenance. New rails provide a smoother ride for passengers.


Any questions?



  • For timetables and service information call Transport Info: 131 500

  • Teletypewriter (TTY) service for hearing and speech impaired customers: 1800 637 500

  • Rail Greenline - environmental complaints: 1300 656 999, 24 hours a day


Thank you

CityRail thanks you for your patience and understanding during this upgrading work and apologises for any inconvenience.


In summary, more (bus) services for the line for a week.
