I like that they intend to use the weird lettering that the heritage platform signs use.

Wasn't there already a new entrance to Chalmers/Devonshire St only 5-10 years ago?

This is on the other side of Chalmers St, next to the Dental Hospital, and will connect to the new Central Walk

They're making trains like airplanes too -which will unfortunately serve Jetstar like passengers and worse.

With the first full six months of metro patronage now available, it looks like, at the same rate, annual patronage will be around 24 to 25 million.

I noticed that the public holiday timetable is basically the weekday one (including 4 minutes in peaks), it just finishes an hour earlier.

They still haven't resolved the grievance of the 10 minute headways starting at 0830.

Normally I take property puff pieces with a pinch of salt but this one has some figures. It's notable that the suburbs Chatswood to Epping already had a rail service but demand has grown nonetheless.

Interesting that the public holiday timetable is the same as the weekday one, in that public holidays get the peak period 4 minute frequency, but both Saturday & Sunday don't.

Are there any large universities nearby? Most, if not all, do not recognise state public holidays, which would make a service similar to the peak desirable on such days.
