I really appreciate the disclaimer that Island Echo put on this type of stories regarding the time period being a legal maximum it helps to reduce the anxiety caused because IWCC and IR rarely give a real estimate of the closure period.

I’m sure people will just walk across the train line rather than walk round the long way

how? theres no level crossing at that location.
also why? the trains might be off but sections of the third rail still carry power to allow for testing, and there is no clue where that might be.
Its illegal and dangerous to tresspass on the railway. people need to walk round.
