Commuters using the Sydney Metro have been urged to delay their trip or use alternative transport for the second Tuesday morning in a row after a "communications issue" halted services between Tallawong and Chatswood for about two hours.
A spokeswoman for Transport for NSW said a "communications issue between the operations centre and the trains in the depot" occurred during preparations for the start of Metro services, shortly before 5am.

The issue resulted in the cancellation of services in both directions between Tallawong and Chatswood.
"Engineers undertook rectification works and restored communication at approximately 6:30am," the spokeswoman said.
At about 7am, services began running again, returning to a normal frequency around 8am.
Buses were brought in to replace and then supplement train services from about 5.30am, the spokeswoman said.
The cause of the incident is currently being investigated, she said.
It's the second Tuesday in a row, and the third time so far this month, that Metro services have been halted by a technical problem.
