There's mention in that link to the changes on the CityRail website about changes to speed restrictions west of Granville and other stations. Can anyone elaborate?

New CityRail timetable to launch next year: biggest overhaul in decades to increase efficiency & passenger load



http://twitter.com/#!/ceda_news/status/193175441794797570

Note of the "biggest overhaul in decades" quote, so what will we see?

My guess will be:


- Ditch timetables, introduce frequencies on major lines
- New stopping patterns
- Changes to Inner West, Bankstown and South including all the turnbacks at Lidcombe, Homebush and Liverpool & K2RQ
- More A sets allowing for more services


Also Gladys is open to mix of single deckers
"kypros1992"


Is there anything known about the new timetable? When is it supposed to start?

October.

NSW and Sydney trains start in July IIRC.

Noting in this news article which they decided to keep in the archive: http://www.cityrail.info/news/2009/090601-timetable



Dated: Monday 1 June 2009

In developing the new timetable, RailCorp carried out extensive community consultation to ensure the proposed timetable was widely available for comment by the community. Consultation commenced on 24 November 2008 with presentations to commuter groups and key stakeholders, including the NSW Commuter Council.

Over 150,000 brochures were distributed at railway stations across the CityRail network during the consultation period to encourage passengers to provide feedback. The proposed timetable was placed on the CityRail website and posters with the timetables were displayed at stations. Feedback was also encouraged from all schools and universities that utilise the CityRail network.

CityRail placed posters at stations and advertisements in newspapers and on the radio to publicise the proposed timetable as widely as possible.

The public consultation period officially closed on 19 December 2008, although RailCorp did include feedback received after this date in its refinement of this timetable. A total of 2,080 submissions were received, with the majority of responses coming via the website.


It is February now, should we expect any community consultation to commence or not? Judging from the previous article, consultation began 6 months prior to the introduction.  There is now, nearly less than 4 months left before the timetable is introduced. Was community consultation a downfall that time?

4 months? Can you count?

Lack of news of consultation on the timetable whose implementation is supposed to be this year is troubling.  It would probably take a few months just for that.  The Illawarra timetable of around 2009 took something like 9 months between the first draft being released and implementation.
  bernerd Junior Train Controller


I may be missing something here, but 4 months only gets me to June :/

And last time I checked the govt was insisting on no consult on this timetable.

October.

Thanks for the answers. Do you guys know if the timetable is going to be finally "revolutionary" in terms of high frequency and transfers?

Well, it's nearly March. Count From March: 1) April, 2)May, 3)June, 4)July.

Maybe because its not going to be popular. If its not popular then the media will have a field day. The time that labor consulted the 2009 timetable changes, I'm guessing there was more services, and who would get angry about that?

"bowralcommuter"



You have a point, but I'm also thinking that the government wants to railroad the changes straight in, rather than sit around and consult, and consult. This results in a shorter, more efficient project delivery, though the result doesn't always go down well. The other possibility is that it's being modelled on last year's consultations.

Dude, you'd be surprised.

EDIT: Maybe we should just sit and wait, rather than speculate.

5) August 6) September 7) October.

As for the question of will it be revolutionary in terms of frequency etc - no. The crew and rollingstock do not physically exist to deliver what you are talking about...

A few stations get an improvement, a few stations get screwed, Cumberland line exists again, faster journey times for quite a few routes... Thats about all I can remember for now.

Thank you for the clarification. May I also clarify for who knows how many times the Username is "Boxythingy". Copy and paste it if you can't type it. It's a rule you know?

I haven't heard this before.  Has that actually been announced?

I reckon it's a retrograde step if true.

  bernerd Junior Train Controller

What do you mean by 'announced'? Why would the minister come out and announce something that she's not doing? There would be an awful lot of media announcements and press conferences flying around if the government were to announce all the things they're not doing.
