Note the " new " old timetable returns Monday with no change on Cleveland line from almost 3 years ago.
With extra rollingstock and drivers I was hoping for the long awaited 15 minute off peak weekday services to be extended from Cannon Hill ( 13 mins away from here ) to Manly, but no.
With a new library and extra supermarket at Wynnum Central a lot of people particularly the elderly now use the train weekdays. However the current half hourly inbound and outbound services are only minutes apart at WC.
The outbound one is usually running late and not helped by frequent ( once or twice a week ) Railway and/or general Police raids at WC. The result is the gates stay down and people laden with shopping cannot get onto the platform for the inbound train which understandably does not wait.
Often the same raids by authorities "clean out" the Cleveland train and walk across to the City train, with prospective pax stuck behind gates. Then the pax have to wait another 30 minutes often with melting shopping in summer and woeful seating at WC.
A 15 minute service to Manly would help immensely.
