V/Line is blaming two level crossing incidents for a slump in performance on the Geelong train line during August. Eight-six per cent of services arrived at their destination on time, a drop from July and below the 92 per cent target.
The organisation says there were two incidents in less than a week, that involved vehicles damaging boom gates on the local line during morning peak. V/Line says the incidents not only delay services, they can be dangerous, as it takes a train up to one kilometre to completely stop when the driver hits the emergency brakes.
In some better news, 97.6 per cent of trains actually hit the tracks, above the 96 per cent target. V/Line added 151 extra services for Geelong passengers in late August.
