Reinstate cut trains stopping at Marino Rocks, Marino and Seacliff stations between 8-9am

The new Adelaide Metro timetable will add 2 extra city bound trains to the Seaford Line between 6am and 9am and a claimed doubling of semi express services.  It also comes with a pledge of a maximum 30 minute wait time.

However city bound commuters from Marino Rocks, Marino and Seacliff (along with Hove, Warradale, Marion and Ascot Park) will see:

  • trains cut from 4 to 2 between 8am and 9am with waits well over 30 mins. For example those missing the 8:07am train from Seacliff will see 2 express trains fly past, before the 8:42am service, arriving in the city well after 9am. 
  • trains cut from 4 to 3 between 7am and 8am

Suggested alternatives like using a car to drive past our local stations (at a time when kids are on the streets making their way to school) just so we can add to parking woes at “express stations” like Hallett Cove or Brighton are dangerous and ill judged. It takes trains 1 minute to stop at each station. 

This should not be about shaving 2 minutes off a Seaford to City commute for a headline. This is about giving all stations a fair amount of choice for getting people to work and kids safely to school. 

Please reinstate peak services to those in the 5049 community and live up to your pledge of every 30mins!

If we’re not successful now, we’ll keep fighting via our new website and Facebook group.
