Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
Hundreds of Sydney Metro passengers were ordered off trains during the height of Thursday morning's peak hour services after mechanical problems on a train at North Ryde caused serious delays.
Commuters reported being left stuck for up to 20 minutes on stationary trains after 8am and being told to disembark and wait for buses.
IT consultant Jacques Beyers said passengers were told to get off at Macquarie Park station and catch a bus to Chatswood to take a T1 train to Town Hall.
"I will be two hours late for work... No work, no pay. I am standing here in a sea of people, all wondering what to do," he said.
While we are all standing here, every five minutes the metro is dumping more people here."
A spokesman for the Transport Management Centre said services at 10.15 were "running at a reduced frequency between Tallawong and Macquarie Park due to urgent mechanical repairs to a train at North Ryde".
"A shuttle metro service and limited buses had been running between Macquarie Park and Chatswood. Buses continue to supplement trains between Macquarie Park and Chatswood until services return to normal."
