Massive queues at Caulfield on day one of April train pain
Early risers avoided the worst of Melbourne's train pain on Monday morning as April's big rail shutdown began in earnest, but the trouble hit after 8am when commuters faced long queues and traffic delays.
They might not have been remembered as clearly because the far higher population density means that there are more lines and therefore more options for trains to be diverted along other routes rather than cancelled completely.What I meant to say as when I lived I. England I never recall these massive shutdowns for a month in the uk. Why MELBOURNE ?
Happens in the UK as well.
If the underground line was shut for 1 month it would have a major effect on the London economy.
The problems with transferring 2 of Melbourne's busiest lines onto buses is insufficient kerb space in the CBD for passengers to board and alight, and other congestion close to the CBD such as the vegan protest. Occupations such as between Sunshine and the CBD were managed well by using a non-CBD transfer point at Flemington Station, and that was only for one line.
