LABOR WILL CRACK DOWN ON ABANDONED SHOPPING TROLLEY PLAGUE

Cancellations on Sydney’s train network soared in the two months following the introduction of the Berejiklian Government’s failed new timetable, figures obtained by the NSW Labor Opposition show.
The new timetable that promised hundreds of new services was introduced in the last week of November 2017.
Labor’s Freedom of Information documents covering the period from 1 February 2016 through to 31 January 2018 found:
In December, train cancellations in peak hours rose 66 per cent on the monthly average;
In January they rose by 259 per cent;
In January there were 346 cancellations alone; and
The number of trains cancelled in the six months to January 2018 – 1,046 – has already eclipsed the number for the whole of last year - 963.
Overall the figures confirm how much Transport Minister Andrew Constance’s timetable of extra services has proven to be nothing more than a mirage.
Labor, train staff and senior bureaucrats consistently warned Minister Constance of the perils of introducing the new timetable without the necessary level of resourcing but he ignored them.
It has been the travelling public that has paid with ongoing delays, cancellations and periodic meltdowns as the network buckles under the weight of new services.
Quotes attributable to Shadow Minister for Transport Jodi McKay
“These figures show that the Liberal Government’s new timetable isn’t worth the paper it is written on.
“The introduction of new services under this timetable is nothing more than a mirage. It’s a cruel hoax to tell commuters that they can expect more services only to find they never turn up.
“Commuters want a rail system that is properly resourced and these figures lay bare the true impact of this government’s failed timetable.”
