  • Sydney train passengers and motorists warned to expect delays

It came following similar chaos on the roads thanks to a fatal motorcycle accident on the Anzac Bridge.

"I want to reiterate nobody should be blaming any staff here", Transport Minister Andrew Constance said.

He said Sydney Trains had been expecting 76 workers to call in sick.

'Service changes this afternoon may affect your travel, due to wet weather & staff sickness, ' Sydney Trains said on Twitter.

"We are working hard to maintain a regular service, so changes are to be expected..."

"Still confused why we are being made to pay for barely any service?"

'Please check, use real-time apps and listen to announcements or contact us'.

The government has refused to refund passengers on days where there is serious delays.

'The afternoon #Sydneytrains commute is going to be a punish.

It left passengers delayed, particularly on the T8 Airport and South line, with some waiting more than an hour for a service into the city.

'No trains running between Glenfield and Macarthur - replaced by buses #incompetence #sydneyTrains #T8, ' tweeted another.

Extra customer service staff are in place at major stations such as Central and Town Hall to manage crowds. When will you get your s**t together #sydneytrains, ' one commuter tweeted.

"In the last two weeks, for instance, we've had some bad tragedies on our railway", he said.

"That has taken staff availability and affected staff availability".

Pressure on Sydney's Town Hall train station has grown significantly during peak periods due to a 23 per cent surge in passengers in just three years, raising the prospect of staff limiting access to platforms more often to avoid severe overcrowding.

The department usually responds to one or two incidents each month.

But Rail, Tram and Bus Union secretary Alex Claassens said the government had spread staff so thin that "a few" workers off sick meant big delays for the network.

"Sydney Trains need to work something out, whatever they're attempting at Town Hall for platform 1 and 2 is beyond a joke and is making the crowding so much worse than normal", commuter Jessica Spookles said.

"Full fare refunds for Sydney commuters for avoidable delays", Opposition Leader Luke Foley said.

Mr Foley live streamed on Facebook to announce the plans to refund commuters, following Monday's delays.
