It’s a nightmare moment: being separated from your child on a city train network. And it’s more likely to happen to you in Melbourne than in any other Australian capital city.
Metro Trains' safety boss Anthony Fewster revealed last month that parent-child separations were alarmingly common, occurring on the rail network about once a fortnight.
But figures obtained by The Age show Melbourne's figure is higher than in other states. On the Sydney metro system parents and children were separated just three times this financial year.
In most other states, rail authorities say separations occur relatively rarely.
Only Brisbane reports a figure closer to Melbourne's, with an average of one separation every 5½ weeks.
