Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
“The Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) has temporarily ceased operations through the Hunter Valley Network between Newcastle and Maitland and the Interstate Network between Telarah and Grafton due to localised flooding.
“This was done as a precautionary measure, following extreme weather conditions across the region.
“High rainfall, potential for more severe flooding beyond the current impacts to the network, strong winds, fallen trees and debris, power failures and fallen power lines and power poles are all concerns which led to operations being halted.
“Weather events such as these have the potential of damage to our network and increases risks to all those involved in the transport operations.
“When it is safe to do so, we will begin the process of reopening the tracks by undertaking a full assessment of rail operations however this will not be until conditions are safe and water levels recede.
“Ensuring the safety of the community, our customers and staff remains our highest priority.
“ARTC will provide further updates as the situation progresses.”
