ARTC Group Executive Interstate Network Simon Ormsby said:
“The maintenance works will be targeted at removing Temporary Speed Restrictions, resurfacing, and vegetation management to ensure that the track condition remains at a high standard.
“The works will be carried out weekly on Saturdays to avoid disrupting the weekly commuter peak. The timing has been selected as it impacts the least number of services over the regular five-hour period. Some Saturdays will be excluded to allow residents to commute to and from community events.
“We apologise for any disruption or inconvenience caused and thank the community for their support and patience while these essential works are taking place.
“Regular maintenance works ensures that the Southern Highlands network’s vital supply chain for the economy and jobs can keep moving, as well as keeping our customers, staff, and the community safe.
“While freight and passenger services will be stopped, we continue to ask motorists to remain vigilant and slow down at level crossings during the shutdowns as there will be machinery and other movements on the rail line.”
