EDITED as now confirmed this is a PERMANENT change.
Not good enough!!
Listen to the lived experience of the community who are telling you this won’t work.
Original petition: With the closure of the Epping to CHATSWOOD line on the 30th September the knock on effect for the train timetable across the entire Upper North Shore network has been unacceptable.
One of the biggest concerns is that Berowra has lost its peak hour direct train to Central via Strathfield and a number of trains no longer exist at peak time and the bus timetables no longer line up with the trains leaving many commuters stranded when they should be home with their families after a long day of work. This has had a serious knock on effect across the entire of the upper north shore network. A simple 32 minute trip to Rhodes (from Berowra) for example, now takes just under an hour.
We demand that the express trains to stop in Berowra again and the original timetable be reinstated. The reasons being that cutting them has significantly extended travel times and inconvenience to Berowra, Mount Colah, Mount Ku-ring-gai and beyond who use Berowra as a transport hub.
It’s not good enough. The people of this area deserve better. Fix it.
NB: Disclosure is important even though I feel this is above and beyond politics m. However transparency is important. I am running in the NSW state elections. Regardless of that this affects my family and a very real and distressing way.
