News article: Metro warns of capacity crunch within two years on some train lines

Metro has warned the Andrews government that three of Melbourne's metro rail lines have breached capacity at peak hour, with three others to follow within the next two years.

How did they arrive at 2 years?

It is already crush on the train now how ridiculous. What is the plan to get this fixed. We talk about toll roads when we really need to fix the rail capacity and the answer is not just metro tunnel.

I can fix the Pakehamn line by doing the following:
-Metro runs express as replacements for the V/Line services to Pakehamn
-V/Line runs the service from Pakehamn to Traralgon

The benefits of this, allows PTV to increase the capacity per service from 222 seats to 536 seats and that increase of 241% capacity.

^That post looks like really cluttered and messy, well at least to me anyway.

"The crowd crushes and heavy disruption experienced during the morning peak on the Sunbury, Craigieburn and Upfield lines will soon become the norm on the Cranbourne, Pakenham and Werribee lines."

Aren't those three lines already seeing it as the norm right now?
And the Upfield line has Massive crowds? Doesn't it have an extremely busy tram line next to it?
And what about the Frankston line?

This article bothers me.
