John Robertson MP | NSW Opposition Leader
Penny Sharpe MLC | Shadow Minister for Transport
TRANSPORT MINISTER MUST EXPLAIN SEVEN MAJOR TRAIN DELAYS IN SIX WEEKS
WHAT HAPPENED TO "FIXING THE TRAINS"??
The NSW Opposition has today called on Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian to apologise to commuters following a horrifying morning on the CityRail network.
Tens of thousands of train commuters struggled to get to work this morning after an incident at Epping saw trains suspended on the Northern Line – causing further flow on delays on the Central Coast, Newcastle, North Shore and Western Lines.
Opposition Leader John Robertson said the Minister needs to step up, take responsibility for the crisis and explain why these delays keep happening.
"The Transport Minister says she's 'fixing the trains' but in six weeks we've had seven major incidents," said Mr Robertson.
