Brisbanites, if catching a train is on your Saturday agenda — and catching one to get to or through the inner-city in a hurry in particularly — you might want to start making other plans. Every line that runs through the Brisbane CBD has been suspended this morning, Saturday, July 25, due to an incident requiring emergency services, with every single stop between Roma Street to Bowen Hills impacted.

All services on all lines that run through the CBD 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 have been brought in to replace trains through the CBD at present, running between Albion, Milton and South Brisbane train stations. That said, Translink still advises that passengers should expect to add an extra hour onto their travel time for the time being.

For further details about the rail delays, head to the Translink website — or keep an eye on the Translink Twitter feed.
