For Question 6

For Question 6, the most common response was that the train station needed to be expanded in terms of platform width and also with respect to the number of platforms and train connections. Some people also commented that Parramatta station should be a major interchange or have a second train station. Moreover, people at the bus depot said that train frequency and promptness needed to be increased and for this to be done so, more integrated bus lanes would have to be built.

For Question 7, the majority of people said that if the volume of commuters continued to increase then public transport delays would only continue to rise. Moreover, because cityrail’s networks are interconnected and thus interdependent, urban growth’s detrimental impact on society could be felt across the western and Cumberland train lines.
