Caboolture and Sunshine Coast lines closed
Between Northgate and Gympie North stations
Saturday 4 February and Sunday 5 February
Buses will replace train on the Caboolture and Sunshine Coast train lines this weekend.
The Caboolture line between Northgate and Caboolture stations and the Sunshine Coast line between Caboolture and Gympie North stations will be closed from the first trains on Saturday (February 4) to the last trains on Sunday (February 5).
Works being undertaken this weekend include:
- Narangba train station upgrade works
- Overhead power line improvements
- Track work and maintenance at various locations
TransLink spokesman Miguel Holland said buses would replace all inbound and outbound trains for customers between Northgate and Gympie North stations during the closure.
"People will still be able to get where they need to go but alternative services will be running," Mr Holland said.
"NightLink trains on the Caboolture line departing Roma Street station will terminate at Northgate station with buses stopping all stations from Northgate to Caboolture."
The South Pine Road level crossing at Strathpine will be closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic with alternate access to Brendale via Mott Street and Kremzow Road. Also, single lane access only will be available at the Newman Road level crossing at Geebung during this weekend.
Customers with a disability should phone 3606 5555 or SMS 0428 774 636 for assistance.
People attending the NRL All Stars vs Indigenous All Stars rugby lague clash at Skilled Park on the Gold Coast, Roger Waters at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Saturday night or the Michael Parkinson concert at QPAC also on Saturday night should plan their journey with this closure in mind.
Normal train services will resume from first services on Monday, February 6.
TransLink and Queensland Rail appreciate people's patience as upgrade and maintenance works continue across the network.
