I don't see why it can't get above 50%. It does in Oslo, although that is a somewhat different situation.

[quote=james.au]This is a rubbish policy - the line is already crowded and I suspect at capacity - why increase this pressure? Plus, this line recovers more of the cost of providing the service than ...

Just running the Carlingford line faster would more than likely allow 30 minute services with a single set and single crew, with a small turnaround at each end. Let's say 4 minutes. It's only 7.25km a ...

I would think all of them except ones in dead ends. Providing that there is a triangle at Port Pirie or near, you can get to all the stations behind it or in Vic, SE SA, NSW country: up to Scone-Werri ...

We know the plan for the Western Line. It is to do nothing other than cut service. All those pages in Sydney's Rail Future and you are arguing that there is a plan that we don't know? What rot.

Where did that come from Shane? I'm tired of right wing apologists, such as yourself, making excuses for the plain evil plans of the Liberal government to ignore and hasten (by decades) the capacity c ...

The real issue is the unacceptable increase to the congestion on the Western and lower Northern lines.We don't yet know the plan for dealing with this.

Does the above still apply?  They were talking about changing the way SSTS payments work in Unsworth, 10 years ago.

Note that platform doors can be used even with manually driven trains,
