All Alamein line stations have the new Metlink signage.

Keilor Plains and Watergardens don't count, as the signage refers to M>Train as well as metlink. Same thing with Parliament, and some signs at Melbourne Central [the different].

Too bad they can't be bothered cleaning the station, or perhaps resurfacing the platform with something that chewing gum doesn't get stuck to, or even installing more lighting Rolling Eyes.

the program in putting up the metlink signage and removing the old ptc and even met transit ones is way behind schedule. a friend of mine who works on the team which is doing it says that they should have already done about 40-50 stations or so already but haven't due to time constrants, funding to do so and the fact that the company who's making the signs is taking ages to make them. unfortunately he won't tell me which stations are next on the list after box hill

Glen Waverly has been done for a while too.

It's a shame about them having fallen behind; the new signage makes the transport system at least look fairly respectable.

Geez I'm just posting that here because it's on topic here and people can know (incase they missed the old thread which is long gone).

Don't be so quick to jump down peoples throats.

nexas what are you talking about? i was just pointing out something. i wasn't saying what people should and shouldn't talk about. its not fair that you say i was jumping down people's throats when you point out similar threads to people all the time. don't be a hypocrite

I tried to email feedback@metlinkmelbourne.com.au about it almost a month ago. I got a standard "Your message has been passed onto Metlink - you will receive a responce within 7 days" message.  I haven't got a responce yet, and they (feedback@metlink/stellarcallcentres) won't respond to my other emails asking when will I get a responce.

Anyone got some contacts inside Metlink who could assist in getting some old station signs that would usually be scrapped?

Since when has it been announced that Box Hill is getting a facelift? Centro (or whoever "maintains" the bus interchange) doesn't give a crap about the 3rd world state its in, and the re is no commercial benefit to Connex for upgrading the station.

when i went to box hill about six months ago i did the right thing and went up to the shopping centre manager's office (as he's also in charge of the station and its upkeep instead of metlink and victrack) and asked if i could take photos. he said i could and when i asked him why the platforms and station altogether weren't in such good condition he said that people higher up at the centro properties group was laying out money for a minor facelift as the condition of the station reflected upon the image of the company

I was referring you posting "This is old news already".

All I simply said was "The next one to be done is Box Hill"... nothing implying that it was brand new news or anything...

Ah well... Box Hill station, and transport interchange, etc... should get a refurbishment... or at least more lighting.

that's fair enough. i guess both of us were quick to judge. let's forget this silly squabbling and get on with the more pressing issue: the new signage and when poor old box hill and every other station for that matter will get it
