What else can we take away from the last 10 years?
Connex to Metro: 10 years ago today
Confirmation on what has NOT changed over a decade. Last night a storm came over Melbourne and disabled signalling in the Victoria Park area and probably Clifton Hill. This important line experienced this issue yet again and again each and every year.This is a topic that always intrigues me every time it rains, whenever it is hot, whenever it is cold, when the wind blows.
On arriving at Parliament Station Platform 1 at 5:30pm a train was leaving so I thought all is good. A Mernda service then arrived and announcements forthwith asking passengers to leave the train and change. Chnmage to what I hear you ask? No one knows.
The next Mernda service arrived and announcements for all change train not taking passengers. So two trains. Not we are at 5:40pm circa.
Then comes the delayed announcement. Major signal failures at Victoria Park and the line was shut. All passengers advised to find another way home.
Route 86 tram to capacity people could not get on.
Again a Metro Shambles.
