The Epping to Chatswood line will close on September 30 in preparation for the new Sydney Metro Northwest line, which will begin operations during the second quarter of 2019.

This update is supposed to be the last important piece of construction before the $ 8.3 billion project is ready for public use next year.

But it's not just that the Epping to Chatswood line is affected: passengers at locations in North Sydney can expect delays at several points during the period.

The adjustments will also affect rail services on the Central Coast and Newcastle, T1 North Shore and Northern lines, as well as the T1 Western, T5 Cumberland, T8 Airport and South, South Coast and Southern Highlands lines.

Transport NSW has launched a fleet of high-frequency Station Link buses to meet the high demand expected during this period, and has advised travelers to plan ahead.

The government has recommended that travelers need to add an additional 10 minutes to their usual travel time.

Businesses across the city are preparing for the planned outage, with many launch contingency plans that include remote work and travel-sharing programs.

Optus has 5500 employees in its Macquarie Park office, and Andrew Parker of the company told The Daily Telegraph that it had implemented a series of initiatives.

"We have expanded our range of flexible work options to encourage more employees to work remotely or modify their start and end schedules, allowing them to travel to work during periods of reduced activity," he said.

Some have taken an opportunistic view of the closure of the railroad, including Serviced Offices International (SOI) which has launched a new temporary office space in Chatswood, specifically targeting those affected by the closure. In the photo: Eddie Reginato, SOI sales manager

"We also expanded our shared-car program, which offers discounted parking for Optus employees who share the car with two or more people, and we have improved the campus cycling facilities so that more people can ride bicycles to work." .

Others have adopted a more opportunistic view of rail closure, including Serviced Offices International (SOI), which has launched a new temporary office space in Chatswood, specifically targeting those affected by the closure.

Sales manager Eddie Reginato told reporters that SOI already had five confirmed clients and many other queries for his suite of 20 private offices.

"We received a query last week from a business with a staff of around 20 people at Epping, and they have just realized that half of their staff lives in the Chatswood area," he said.

"And with the closure, one of the options they want to see is the additional office space at Chatswood, which will help productivity and staff morale because they will not have to deal with congestion issues."

When completed, the new Sydney Metro Northwest line will provide Epping stations, Macquarie University, Macquarie Park, North Ryde and Chatswood with screen doors along the platforms.

This "will keep people and objects like carts off the tracks, improve customer safety and allow trains to enter and leave the stations much faster," said Transport NSW.

Daily Mail has communicated with Transport NSW for more comments.
