Sydney Train Strike: The boss of Sydney Trains has deflected criticism about passengers boarding over-crowded trains during a pandemic, saying that people need to make their own COVID decisions before entering a train.

“Those COVID principles apply today as they have previously…If they see a crowded train, they make that decision themselves. That conscious decision not to go on that train, wait for the next one. Again, the next train is going to be a while given the changes to the train timetable, but rather than jump on a congested train, I’d suggest and ask for the next one” – Dale Merrick – Chief Operating Officer – NSW TrainLink.

Train passengers have also been warned that there will be a similar train strike across the network next week.
