QR Christmas Party Poopers (Again)

Christmas has many traditions - Santa, Carol Singers, Tacky Lights, Nativity Scenes, oh, and QR stuffing up Brisbanites transport home from Christmas parties yet again.

At the time of year when lots of pissed office workers want to get home from Christmas parties, QR have spoilt the fun with the following track closures:

  • 2nd Dec - Roma Street to Bowen Hills and Albion
  • 6th Dec - Corinda to Redbank and Springfield
  • 7th and 8th Dec - Kingston to Varsity Lakes
  • 9th Dec - Roma Street to Northgate and Ferny Grove
  • 11th, 12th, and 13th Dec - Park Road to Varsity Lakes
  • 14th and 15th Dec - Northgate to Caboolture
  • 19th and 20th Dec - Bowen Hills to Northgate
It should be noted that most other first world cities either have very limited or no track closures in December. No wonder there are so many drink drive incidents in SE Queensland around this time of year! 

WTF ??


  1. Northgate to Caboolture is closed for a whole week over Xmas. Sucks to working in the city between Christmas and New Year.. oh wait.. that's me.
    Works are between Bald Hills and Petrie, and the Moreton Bay Rail.. so why shut the whole line!? Why not operate a shuttle from Bald Hills?! Queensland Fail!

  2. Yes, not good news for those that need to work between Xmas and New Year on the Caboolture Line including those who work in healthcare and retail. There are switches at Bald Hills, so a more limited closure should have been possible.
