Buses to replace trains next week


Buses will replace trains from February 11-14 when the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC) carries out a major maintenance shutdown. The shutdown will affect the rail network from the port of Newcastle through to Narrabri and out to Ulan, with overnight outages on the passenger network from Islington to Maitland. It is expected to start at 6.30am on Tuesday, February 11 and finish at 6.30am Friday, February 14. Details and schedules for bus services can be found at the Transport for NSW website.
