QUEENSLAND Rail has added 32 weekly trains services to the southeast Queensland network which start operating today.

The 32 services have been reinstated since being cut in October 2016 due to driver shortages and will operate during peak times.

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the reinstated services are a part of a larger plan to improve the Queensland Rail network.

“The 32 new services add to new customer initiatives, including the $114 million park ‘n’ ride upgrade program, live train information on the MyTransLink app, station platform raising and the rollout of new passenger information displays across the south east,” he said.

“Queensland Rail is on track to deliver further timetable improvements later this year, following the largest driver recruitment and training campaign in its history.”

The new services have been added to the Airport, Cleveland, Ferny Grove, Gold Coast, Redcliffe Peninsula, Shorncliffe and Springfield lines.
