On the back of industrial action this week, Seaford and Tonsley line commuters were further inconvenienced last night when a signalling issue caused trains to run almost an hour late in peak hour.
“Last night’s signal failure affecting Seaford and Tonsley line trains was another blow to South Australian commuters and Minister Mullighan must explain what caused this latest failure,” said Shadow Transport Minister Corey Wingard.
“Minister Mullighan also needs to explain why the hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent on Adelaide’s transport network are not delivering efficient and effective services.
“Signal failures are an issue that have been plaguing Adelaide’s rail network for months.
“Over the past week we have seen train and tram drivers take industrial action, affecting peak hour services and university students sitting exams.
“The Weatherill Labor Government has had more than 18 months to sort out these industrial relations issues with train and tram drivers and they have just dropped the ball.
“South Australians just want a reliable and safe public transport system but the Weatherill Labor Government is failing to deliver this.
“Public transport users in South Australia deserve better.”
