The Byron Bay Solar Train will not be operating for six days from September 10 through till September 15, say its managers.
Scheduled maintenance involving tamping, or levelling, of the three-kilometre section of track will be undertaken during this time.
‘There will be some noise along the rail corridor’, development director for Byron Bay Railroad Company Jeremy Holmes said.
‘However, we are using a much quieter machine than those previously used. We will move down the line as we work on about 500 metres of the rail corridor each day.’
The work will be undertaken between the hours of 7am and 5pm, says Holmes.
‘From September 28, two Friday and Saturday evening return services will be added for the warmer months.
‘These will depart the North Beach Station at 6pm and 7pm and depart the Byron Beach Platform at 6.15 and 7.15pm.’
