Every Train Line Through Central Station Is Experiencing Major Delays Due to a Track Fault
Rail passengers can expect waits of up to 50 minutes in all lines through the CBD.
Brisbanites, if catching a train is on your agenda today, Wednesday, June 16 — and catching one to get to or through the inner-city in a hurry in particular — then you might want to start making other plans. Every line that runs through Central Station is currently experiencing major delays due to a track fault near the CBD transport hub.
All services on all lines that run through the inner city are affected, which spans a lengthy list, including the Airport, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast services. Also impacted: the Beenleigh, Caboolture, Ipswich/Rosewood, Springfield, Cleveland, Doomben, Ferny Grove, Shorncliffe and Redcliffe Peninsula lines, too.
Buses haven't been brought in to replace trains, but commuters can expect delays of up to 50 minutes on all lines — so, if you don't have any option but to catch a train, prepare to spend some time waiting.
At the time of writing, Translink has advised that technicians are onsite attending to the fault. Fingers crossed that it's fixed before the end-of-day commute hits.
Today has been an eventful day for Brisbanites when it comes to leaving the house, with a blanket of thick fog sparking weather warnings and road visibility issues first thing this morning.
