Call to publish performance data in a timely manner TransLink and Queensland Rail

Good Morning,

TransLink and Queensland Rail are becoming very slow in publishing performance data.  Particularly annoying is that Queensland Rail is happy to give media data but refuses to update their public performance data website ( http://www.queenslandrail.com.au/about%20us/Pages/Servicepunctualityandreliability.aspx and http://www.queenslandrail.com.au/aboutus/ourperformance/safety-and-security ).  This just reinforces the contempt many already feel with respect to the bumbling transport authorities. Where is the data for February, March and April for skipped stations, SPADs and bridge strikes?

TransLink was months behind with the public reporting of the performance data snapshots ( https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/translink-public-transport-performance-snapshots ) which leads to prolonged public reporting delays with the TransLink Tracker ( https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/translink-division-quarterly-reports ). So late was the TransLink Tracker that Q1 and Q2 for 2017-18 were combined into a joint publication!

It is another sign of the culture of failure and the misdirected elitism that permeates the transport portfolio and its bureaucracies.

We call on the Minister to direct the bumbling transport agencies to publish performance data in a timely manner, no later than 2 weeks after the period is completed.  If the agencies cannot achieve simple tasks it is little wonder the public transport network is such a mess hey!

Thank you.

Robert

Public transport data on a slow train ...

Good Morning,

In the Queensland Parliament Questions without notice 12th June 2018 the Minister for Transport and Main Roads in response to a question  " Will the minister please advise what the Palaszczuk government is doing to improve passenger rail in Queensland compared with the LNP? " said in part in response that " We have also returned to monthly reporting which shows ongoing data. .. " ( https://www.parliament.qld.gov.au/documents/hansard/2018/2018_06_12_DAILY.pdf ).

What the Minister failed to say was that this data is months and months behind in actually being published. For example Safety and Security at Queensland Rail ( https://www.queenslandrail.com.au/aboutus/ourperformance/safety-and-security ) the last published data being January 2018. Some of this data was given to the media but the public continues to be treated with contempt.

Similarly the publishing of the  monthly TransLink public transport performance snapshots is months behind.  The last being published is January 2018 ( https://publications.qld.gov.au/dataset/translink-public-transport-performance-snapshots ).

This apparent deliberate policy of not publishing the data in a timely manner was not correctly identified by the Minister in his answer in Parliament. When will the data be published Minister Bailey?  What is there to hide?  More failure?

Thank you.

Best wishes,
Robert
