Train Delays Continue After Coast Truck Rollover Scott Kennedy/facebook

Update 5PM: Trains are back up and running on the Central Coast-Newcastle line, after an earlier truck rollover between Ourimbah and Tuggerah saw the line shut between Gosford and Wyong across the day.

While Transport for NSW has confirmed it happened at the site of the new Rail Maintenance Facility being constructed at Kangy Angy. A statement from them is below:

"At around 9.15am today a truck and trailer was travelling on an access road within the rail corridor between Ourimbah and Tuggerah near the Kangy Angy maintenance facility site.
The trailer appears to have tipped into the shoulder of the main rail line and its spoil has spilled onto the Newcastle-bound track.
The driver of the truck was not injured and the truck itself remains upright.
The truck was carrying fill material for the maintenance facility site and had the correct permissions and related safety arrangements in place.
All work was stopped at the maintenance facility site at Kangy Angy so a safety assessment could be completed. Work is being restarted on site as this assessment progresses."
At this stage no environmental impacts have been identified but we will continue to monitor this as the truck and trailer is salvaged and the area cleared.
