Mr MINNIKIN: Mr Easy, in some circumstances, where trains do not stop at stations they are
scheduled to stop at, it is referred to as skipped stations. In February of this year, there was a large
spike in skipped stations. In May of this year, we are above 100 for the month again. Can you please
advise the cause of this phenomena of skipped stations?

Mr Easy: The specific circumstances attached to those periods you are talking about, I am not
sure I can answer that in detail, but what I can say is that there are a number of reasons that cause
trains to skip past stations. A very good example of that is when we have a medical incident on the
network. We do have unfortunately times where customers have a medical episode. Our attention there
is again on the safety, care and the welfare of those customers. During those times we may decide to
skip stations. That means that the customer can be detrained from the train. We can have the
Ambulance Service attend them and take care of them. There are many, many reasons that lead to
skipped stations on our network.

If I refer to the percentage of skipped services over the last financial year, it was 0.26 per cent,
and if I compare that with the previous year, it is 0.23 per cent. What we are seeing is a very low number
of skipped stations that occur on our network. The circumstances where it does occur are varied. As I
said, medical incidents is one of those. We make those decisions very sparingly because when that
does occur, there is a disruption to our customers, and we try to minimise that.

Mr MINNIKIN: I appreciate that, Mr Easy, thank you. You have raised a very good point in
relation to medical necessities which is absolutely acceptable and to be applauded. Can you just
elaborate on what some of the other reasons might be for skipped stations in a bit more detail?

Mr Easy: As I said, medical emergency is one reason. There may be a delay on the network as
a result of another train. As you can imagine, we have many customers being carried on our trains,
albeit that during the COVID pandemic we have seen a significant reduction. But at times we make
decisions to move the maximum number of customers to their destinations. There are varied reasons
that can lead to that circumstance.

It's interesting how the flat junctions and a few slow passengers can cause the express running of a few services ie slots into/thru the city instead of ot performance.

Passengers at Windsor, Wilston, and Newmarket are often screwed by trains running only a few minutes late being expressed in the pm peak.

Couriermail --> Number of Queensland Rain train services skipping stations on the rise $

QuoteStation skipping on the Queensland Rail network is on the rise, with dozens of train services every month passing through stations they are meant to stop at.

There were 705 services that skipped stations on their route in the five months to November 30 – a 163 per cent spike from the 268 stop-skipping services from the same time the year prior.

Queensland Rail has defended the figures, insisting that the 705 services only made up 0.4 per cent of the services that were ran during that time.

In November 2021 alone, there were 201 train services that did not stop at all the stations they were meant to – which was the highest number recorded for a single month in the 17 months up to that point.

In October 2021, there were 128 services that skipped stations, in September there was another 128 station-skipping services, and in August there were 135. ...

In all fairness a lot of the station skipping has been due to flat junctions of Eagle Junction, Bowen Hills and Park Road so services can retain their city slots. It's also why it's still common to have Cleveland-Shorncliffe running mains in morning peak hour to overtake. Also doesn't help that Park Road has missing platforms due to CRR Works.

Brisbanetimes --> 30% spike in station skips across rail network amid floods, COVID

QuoteThe number of stations skipped by Queensland trains in the first four months of 2022 has jumped more than 30 per cent from the same period last year, as the state battled COVID-19 waves and floods.

Queensland Rail performance data shows the number of stations skipped between January and May rose to 550 this year, up from 420 across the same period in 2021.

On-time running — the portion of services arriving within four minutes of their scheduled time, or six minutes for Gold Coast, Rosewood and Sunshine Coast trains — has also slipped this year and is yet to recover. ...
