To ensure the safety and reliability of our rail network and to keep it as one of the best in Australia, we need to regularly maintain it, which can result in track closures.
While we conduct most maintenance in the small window at night when no trains are running, sometimes we need to work for longer stretches and that’s when closures have to occur. We minimise the disruption by planning most work for nights and weekends when less people travel.
Importantly, we will always provide train replacement bus services, which are designed to match the train services as closely as possible.
We understand that track closures can be pretty frustrating – especially if you’re in a hurry. That’s why we’ve brought together all the information that can help you plan ahead.
