No. 1781
Asked on Thursday 24 October 2019

MR D PURDIE ASKED MINISTER FOR TRANSPORT AND MAIN ROADS (HON M BAILEY)

QUESTION:

Will the Minister provide the metrics for on-time running (OTR) and reliability for the Gympie North
services which are presently bundled up with the OTR statistics for the Sunshine Coast Line for
the 2018-19 financial year?

ANSWER:
I thank the Member for Ninderry for the question.

Queensland Rail is focused on continuing to improve its on-time running performance across the
network, including for Gympie North services.

Last financial year (2018–19), Queensland Rail reliably operated 98.94 per cent of Gympie North
services, with 79.04 per cent running on-time, taking into account force majeure.

Gympie North services travel the longest journey on the South East Queensland network. They
also share track infrastructure with Caboolture and Redcliffe Peninsula trains, as well as freight
and long-distance travel services. This means delays on any of these services or lines can cause
flow-on impacts to Gympie North trains.

Queensland Rail works hard to minimise the impacts of any unplanned disruptions and has crews
and equipment positioned at both Petrie and Sunshine in the north to ensure rapid responses to
incidents, particularly during peak times.

Queensland Rail is investing in infrastructure and rollingstock upgrades to continually improve
the on-time running and reliability of Gympie North services. This includes the delivery of a
$43 million signalling system upgrade between Caboolture and Gympie North, to enable newer
trains to operate to Gympie North in the future, and a comprehensive maintenance program for
its current fleet.

Queensland Rail is also committed to working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads
on the Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade Project, which will provide additional track capacity
on the Sunshine Coast line to enable future timetable improvements.

How is an 'upgraded' ATP signalling system going to enable 'new' trains beyond Nambour when there's no given timeline for ATP installation on the NGRs, and units that are not the ATP equipped ICE/3 crew IMU100/120s are barred from travelling beyond Nambour due to ATP requirements.

FMA = 79.04%  CI is probably around 75%.

These words show very clearly which is the lead agency on this project:

"Queensland Rail is also committed to working with the Department of Transport and Main Roads
on the Beerburrum to Nambour Rail Upgrade Project, which will provide additional track capacity
on the Sunshine Coast line to enable future timetable improvements."

(Unfortunately, the 'timetable improvements' won't be north of Nambour.)
