is this also timed to coincide with some RRL related works??I have no idea really but is there a possibility that with platforms 15/16 will presumably be ready for use relatively soon - this loop reve ...

Longer journey times are not good news.Metro justified adding padding to the Frankston line timetable on account of the Siemens braking issue.  Now that the issue has been 'resolved', the padding sh ...
