It means it affects the south line from Granville to Glenfield and from Lidcombe to Liverpool via Sefton, the trains from Central to Revesby via the Airport will instead extend to Campbelltown to replace the services between Glenfield and Campbelltown that would normally run via Granville. The normal services from Central to Macarthur via the Airport will still also run.

Hope it's ok from Strathfield. I was speaking to two poor souls who braved the cityrail bus to Gosford last week.

It took them three and a half hours to get there! Yikes!

If your coming from gosford or Newcastle. Stay on the train to central the take to airport line to campbelltown. It's the quickest way. Would add about 20mins to your trip
