Two hour train delays as Brisbane network thrown into chaos
Brisbane’s rail network has been thrown into meltdown with trains delayed by up to two hours after a signal fault at a major station.
A signal issue at the Eagle Junction station around 5am sent the network into chaos with the airport line experiencing delays between 30 minutes and more than two hours.
Passengers on the Caboolture, Ferny Grove, Redcliffe Peninsula, Shorncliffe and Sunshine Coast line trains are facing delays of up to 60 minutes.
UPDATE: All train lines network wide are delayed up to 30 minutes in both directions due to a signalling fault at Eagle Junction. https://t.co/3WGNRf0I2H #TLAlert #TLRedcliffepeninsulaline #TLShorncliffeline #TLSpringfieldline #TLSunshinecoastline pic.twitter.com/P4ZAnbNLxf

The signal fault has been fixed but there are still delays.
Queensland Rail Natalie Roach tells Ray Hadley they are working to minimise them.
“We do expect to see some knock-on impacts but do hope to be fully recovered for the afternoon peak.”
