Starting from the first service on Saturday, 22 December 2018 until the last service on Saturday, 29 December 2018, there will be track closures on the Ipswich, Springfield, and Inner City lines.

Railbuses will be replacing trains between the affected stations so commuters can plan their journey in advance. Timetables will also be available to inform commuters about the schedule of the arrival times.

Take note that normal services will resume from the first service on Sunday, 30 December 2018.

Improvement Works

Track closures are part of the improvement works on Queensland Rail’s network. Train signals between Roma Street and Corinda stations will be upgraded and new track crossovers will be installed near the Milton station.

The benefits of these upgrades include:

  • replacement of old signals infrastructure, some of which is over 50 years old
  • integration of signals with new, sophisticated train control systems
  • installation of new track crossovers, eliminating congestion and potential delays.
