We all know that, heading into the NSW state election on Saturday, transport should be a concern for voters. For those who have good services, they should be concerned about future proofing them, for those with poor services, lobbying to get them, or keep what is left, and for those on train lines all over the state, we’d like better tracks that aren’t held together with Christmas stickytape, like my running repairs on this junction yesterday.
Fortunately we were able to resolve this issue with a little re-jigging of the path after one incident with the bridge.
We’ve already completed the “under table rail link” and construction was underway to join the two fiddly loops with a shuttle train.
It appears also that Minister Ez is a fan of heavy rail where heavy rail should be, and no overlap with buses and cars – buses on the rail routes were quickly removed from service. Her or the highway – buses will not replace trains in her world.
What would you change about your local public transport?
