For the four-day long weekend from April 2, 11 train lines in Brisbane will be shut down, including the Airtrain service, and replaced by buses.

The closures are expected to affect up to 140,000 passengers and put extra pressure on south-east Queensland roads.

Cross River Rail general manager Matthew Martyn-Jones said to deliver the $5.4 billion project, the network had to be closed to do extensive track and construction work.

“It involves things like rewiring, re-signalling, cable works, actually lowering the track in some places, and also extensive drainage and sewage relocation work,” Mr Martyn-Jones said.
