Sydney Metro: the delays continue
A mechanical problem has left Sydney Metro commuters stranded today for the third Tuesday in a row.
There was a 15 minute gap between services which backed up the network and kept some waiting for up to half an hour on crowded platforms with no relief in sight.
“The NSW Government can no longer just refer to this as a new system with teething issues which people just need to accept. The Metro has been in operation for months now and every delay just proves how unreliable and inefficient the network is,” said RTBU Loco Division Secretary Bob Hayden.
“They should stop focusing on spending billions on new Metro infrastructure, and instead invest in extending/upgrading proven existing heavy rail infrastructure. It makes no sense to replace efficient heavy rail infrastructure like the Bankstown Line with more unreliable Metro infrastructure”.
