Rail timetable changes

Re: “Plea to give new timetable a chance” (Leader, September 26).

My understanding is the new timetable for the Illawarra line is designed to reduce commuting times for residents in “outer suburbs” — like those in the shire, plus Oatley, Mortdale and Penshurst.

That appears to be why, if you’re travelling from south of Hurstville and need to get to any of the stations between Allawah and Arncliffe, you need to change at Hurstville.

The trade-off is that there apparently will be an all-stations service running from Hurstville to Wolli Creek every 10 minutes.

I get that Kogarah residents are upset that they’re losing services so that they only get a northbound train every 10 minutes.

But I find it really hard to believe that the government would implement a new timetable unless it believed it would improve the current mess.

Can we see how this new system works before we all jump off a cliff in united outrage?
