Costa flags Sydney rail split into five lines

<p>New South Wales transport services minister Michael Costa is today (Thursday, August 21) expected to unveil plans to split Sydney rail services into five distinct lines.</p> <p>The plans envisage a series of changes over the next five to 10 years to free-up the city’s clogged passenger rail network, the <em>Sydney Morning Herald</em> reported this morning.</p> <p>It is hoped the division will allow pinch points and bottlenecks to be better isolated without affecting the entire network.</p> <br />
