Hunter Valley Track Machine Program (June)
2018-06-22 @ 8:00 pm - 2018-06-26 @ 4:00 am
This is to provide information specifically about track machines in the Hunter Valley (tamping, grinding and milling) and where they will be working in June 2018.
To maintain the track, the machines need to be constantly working around the network, including at night. We understand they can be loud and disruptive at times to our community. The machines look similar to trains but move at a slower pace, around 2-15km/hr and generally do not work in an area for very long.
As track machines work during both live operations and scheduled maintenance periods, it can be difficult to predict their exact location ahead of time.
The following dates and times will involve specifically rail grinding activity:
22nd – 24th June: Murulla to Muswellbrook
20:00 – 04:00 (Main North Single Line)
25th June: Muswellbrook to Mangoola
20:00 – 04:00 (Ulan Single Line)
26th June: Maitland to Sandgate
20:00 – 04:00 (Down Coal Line)
