Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
THE Hunter Valley Rail Network will shutdown from 6:30am on Tuesday, February 9 until Friday, February 12, while the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) completes maintenance work on three Muswellbrook bridges.
Alternative bus services will be available for impacted passenger services, with details and schedules provided on the Transport NSW website.
Wayne Johnson, ARTC Group Executive of the Hunter Valley Network advised that no major traffic changes are planned during the February work period.
“We may need to schedule short duration road closures of under three minutes at Bridge Street however, these short closures will be scheduled outside peak hours to decrease traffic interruptions and there will also be traffic controls in place during these times,” said Mr Johnson.
Maintenance will include foundation construction and piling works on the Hunter River Bridge, Muscle Creek Bridge and Bridge Street Bridge in Muswellbrook.
“During this shutdown period we will continue construction of the bridge foundations for the new bridge over Bridge Street and around 230 metres of new track will also be constructed within the work area,” said Mr Johnson.
“There is also some piling works scheduled during this shutdown period that will be carried out to the west of the main construction site between the Hunter River and Muscle Creek,” he said.
“ARTC is committed to carrying out all piling works, which causes sudden, loud banging between 7am and 9pm each day to reduce community disturbance following community feedback during a planned works period last year,” he said.
Maintenance work details
The next major maintenance shutdown is scheduled for April 2021.
