Commuters using Hawksburn, Toorak and Armadale stations have long suffered from a lack of peak hour services, unreliability and overcrowding with up to 12 minute waits between peak hour services.
As a local Sam has experienced first-hand overcrowded trains leaving commuters stuck at the station unable to board, whilst express trains with excess capacity pass through the stations.
Update (April 2017): Sign the online petition! Sam has now launched an online petition to increase peak hour services Hawksburn, Toorak & Armadale Stations.
Update (November 2016): Sam presented the petition to retain the temporary timetable in the Victorian Parliament however the state government has reverted to the old timetable following the completion of level crossing works. You can read about it here.
Update (March 2016): You may have noticed peak hour services are now running every 5 minutes during morning and afternoon peak.
However, this improvement is only temporary until level crossing removal works are completed and express services will resume forcing you to wait up to 12 minutes between peak-hour services once again.
Sam is running a petition calling on the state government to permanently retain high-frequency peak hour services at Hawksburn, Toorak & Armadale stations.
