An investigation is underway after a man died in a train tunnel near the Sydney station of Green Square on Friday night.

The man is yet to be formerly identified but police believe he is in his twenties.

Emergency services were alerted to the incident about 7.30pm on Friday.

The man was in the railway tunnel between Green Square and Central railway stations when he died.

Trains on the Airport and South Line of the Sydney train network were stopped while emergency services attended and retrieved the man’s body.

A NSW Police spokesperson said the circumstances of the man’s death were being investigated.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.

T8 Sydney Trains first announced on Twitter that a man had been injured in a train tunnel in Sydney on Friday night.

But tragically the alert was changed to a fatality after about an hour.

Buses rushed to replace the Airport line train from Sydenham station onwards for about two hours on Friday night as emergency services responded.
