Sydney Flooding: Extreme storm weather to cause traffic, train delays

  • LIVE UPDATE: Sydney Monster storm

Sydneysiders are warned to avoid traveling whenever possible this afternoon, with the expectation of the waters to deteriorate further as the night and night commuting methods.

There are currently a number of roads closed across Sydney and it is anticipated that public transport will be delays during peak hours.

Trains have given the best to run between Gordon and Hornsby on the T1 North Shore train line due to a tree falling into overhead wires between Pymble and Turramurra, and new buses run on this route.

A ferry between Parramatta and Sydney Olympic Park has also been canceled because the weir is overflowed and replaced by buses.

The mid-Dulwich Hill light line, which has closed for most of the day due to flooding in a number of locations, has now reopened.


Transport authorities have encouraged commuters to continue to monitor the social media social media accounts because, despite the rainfall, there is a very lively situation.

Travelers traveling on T1 North Shore, Northern & Western Line, T2 Inner West and Leppington Line, T3 Bankstown Line and T8 Airport & South Line should expect delays.

Traffic lights are blurred and yellow flashing in a number of suburbs across Sydney that contribute to traffic delays on the road system.

Some roads have reopened this afternoon after the rain this morning flooding – and in some cases, landslides – but many remain closed.

The Meteorology Office told Sydney commuters to expect the rain to intensify again this afternoon as the low pressure system over the city moves towards the coast across the center of Sydney.

Zhi-weng Chua's Duty preposteror said the weather would only start clearing tomorrow morning.

"It will start to pull back (the afternoons) when the low moves towards the coast is currently internal and moving towards the coast."

Speaker of the SES, SES, Phil Schafer, warned people who need to do a school run or afternoon commuting too through flooding as rain increases.

"So far 13 floods reduce where they drive through flooding, putting their lives at risk," he said.

"Parents on school run: do not drive through a flood and keep clear of storm drainage."

The SES has received 860 calls for help, including those where trees have fallen into cars and homes.

Traffic Commander and NSW Highways, Michael Corboy, said the conditions would deteriorate further over the afternoon, and would encourage Sydneysiders to avoid travel.

"If you're staying at home today, stay at home for the rest of the day, but do not go out this afternoon, because it is anticipated that it will come back and get worse this afternoon" said Mr Corboy.
