BUSES will replace trains on the Cleveland line and wider network as track works are undertaken.

A Queensland Rail spokesperson said buses would replace trains between Cleveland and Park Road from 11.30pm on Friday, January 18 to the last train on Sunday, January 20.

The spokesperson said commuters could look at a timetable published online and at bus stops for more information.

The tracks would be closed as ballast was replaced at Hemmant and works at Wynnum’s Ronald Street level crossing were undertaken.

Other works would also be undertaken throughout the corridor, with track closures across the wider network planned.

Queensland Rail also issued a noise notice for the works and the delivery of ballast to stations on the Cleveland line.

Delivery works would be undertaken between the Birkdale and Ormiston stations from 9pm on Thursday, January 10 until 5am on Friday, January 11.

Works would then be carried out between the Ormiston and Manly stations between 9pm on Friday, January 11 to 5am on Saturday, January 12.

“This work involves the use of loud, heavy machinery, including loaders and trucks with extendable trailers, horns, bright flashing lights and reversing beepers,” the spokesperson said.

“Every effort will be made to carry out these works with respect for our valued neighbours.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your patience as we work to improve your network.

“Work may be subject to change due to operational and weather conditions.”
