Trackwork time, and some are complaining.
CityRail Trackwork Threatens To Keep Dragos Fans Away
SYDNEY is preparing for its biggest non-grand final crowd in 102 years – but CityRail is threatening the travel plans of thousands of Dragons supporters.
Almost 20,000 tickets were sold to club members yesterday with the projected figure to crash through 50,000 today when seats go on sale to the public.
Yet in an extraordinary decision, CityRail has schedule trackwork on Saturday for the Illawarra and South Coast lines – affecting passengers travelling to Homebush Bay from the Hurstville, Sutherland, Kogarah, Rockdale, Dapto, Wollongong and Thirroul areas.
Yesterday the express bus in the morning proved faster than the train; not quite so great on the way back.
