The Berejiklian Government is failing to meet its own targets for punctuality on the Sydney train network one out of every two days, despite a promise to tweak its disastrous timetable.
Since February, Sydney Trains is consistently failing to meet its own target of 92 per cent of trains arriving in the Sydney CBD between 6am and 10am, and leaving the city between 3pm and 7pm within five minutes.
Throughout February, March, April and up until 10 May, trains failed to meet the target on average 53 per cent of the time (see table below).
In February, Transport Minister Andrew Constance was forced to tweak his rushed out train timetable after January saw a network meltdown.
Despite slashing almost 100 services, Minister Constance has failed to bring the network back up to speed with punctuality figures revealing that the trains are still not running on time.
Train punctuality on weekdays
It follows revelations yesterday that the Berejiklian Government is failing to recruit train drivers to the network, with a net loss of 141 staff since the Liberals took power in 2011 (up until January 2017).

“These figures show what we’ve known all along, Andrew Constance is failing to properly resource the Sydney train network.
“Andrew Constance promised hundreds of extra services, but he simply cannot deliver them.”
