NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has welcomed the resumption of NSW TrainLink services from Sydney to Armidale and Moree following damage to the network caused by recent severe storms in the Hunter Valley.
Mr Marshall said the first train operating from Armidale and Moree to Sydney will depart tomorrow at the normal times of at 8.40am and 8.05am respectfully.
“I am extremely grateful to all customers for their patience and understanding over the past week,” Mr Marshall said.
“The safety of customers and staff is always the number one priority and the goal was always to restore services as soon as it was safe.”
NSW TrainLink has been working closely with the Hunter Line network operator, Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), at multiple sites of the recovery operations.
“I appreciate the dedication of both our staff and ARTC who have restored services safely and as quickly as possible,” Mr Marshall said.
Customers should visit the NSW TrainLink website or call 132 232 for the latest information.
