Relative motion in 1 dimension

A train is approaching a platform with a speed of 20 km/hr. A bird is sitting on a pole at the platform. When train is 2 km away from the pole brakes are applied so that the train accelerates uniformly, simultaneously the bird also flies towards the train with a velocity 60 km/hr. It touches the nearest point on the train and flies back and back again and so on. find total distance travelled by the bird before train stop.
Can you solve this problem by relative motion concept?
