Surely, they just delay the work so much that it never reopens...  :conf:

Well, it won't reopen it its current position, it will be 100m or so to the south IIRC.

I've got no issue with the original terminating station being displayed as normal (if everything just said 'Bowen Hills', people unfamiliar with the network may not board the train). However, where it has each station listed, it really should have something like:

Central
Fortitude Valley
Bowen Hills
Change at Bowen Hills to rail replacement bus service to:
Albion
Wooloowin
Etc.

Would make it much clearer IMO.
