Local commuters are set for Christmas pain, with Queensland Rail closing part of the Ipswich line for eight days to carry out upgrades.
Q-R will spend 56 million dollars upgrading signalling from Roma Street to Corinda on the line, which will be closed from the 22nd to the 29th of December.
CEO Nick Easy says it'll benefit commuters in the long-run.
"I think the important message for our customers during this closure period is to plan ahead.
Use the journey planner on the Translink website.
The bus timetable services, that we've provided during this time, they are available on the website".
