Some services are a bit quicker between Traralgon and Garfield but the running times for the whole trip are almost identical to the current timetable. In fact, most services in the commuter area have been slowed yet again.
The only consolation is that the stopping pattern for the InterCity services has been retained.
Some V/Line exec will no doubt feel a tingle in his jocks at the prospect of announcing an increased number of VLocity semi-express services for Gippsland pax, but in reality Gippsland commuters have been dudded again. And, performance targets will now be slightly easier to achieve.
