Melbourne Rail

Interesting article stating reasons why Melbourne’s Rail network will be too slow to expand to accommodate city growth, and why it is already overloaded as it stands.

“The current ‘capacity crisis’ is the result of inefficient operating practices that

developed during and after the 1980s, when rail patronage had fallen to only a third
the level
the City Loop was expected to handle. Because all the staff with the skills
and ‘corporate memory’ needed to operate the system according to its original designs
left at or before privatization, neither Connex nor the Department has the ability to
efficiently utilize the capacity that has already been provided at such huge cost.”
