Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A full schedule of Blue Mountains trackwork and shutdown periods has been released up to May next year.
The work is being done to cater for railway line modifications to support the rollout of the new intercity fleet.
Blackheath bus train tango last week: Modifications along the rail corridor from Springwood to Lithgow stations are being made to accommodate the new trains.
Twelve days of trackwork finished on September 13. The next period is marked for October 28-November 8.
Standard construction hours are 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm Saturday, but work outside construction hours is expected in these shutdown periods, according to Transport NSW information.
During October 28-November 8, Faulconbridge, Linden, Hazelbrook, Bullaburra, Wentworth Falls, Katoomba, Mt Victoria, Lithgow and the Ten Tunnels (between Newnes Junction Station and Zig Zag Station) will be affected.
There is also trackwork planned from December 26-30. It will affect Ten Tunnels, Woodford, Lawson, Leura, Katoomba, Mt Victoria and Lithgow.
Subject to verification, work is set for February 21 to March 6, 2020, affecting Ten Tunnels, Lawson, Katoomba, Medlow Bath, Blackheath, Bell, Mt Victoria and Lithgow.
Work commissioning Faulconbridge to Lithgow is expected from May 11-22, 2020, but this is still to be confirmed.
Platforms are being extended at Katoomba, Lithgow and Mt Victoria.
