Single platform at Shorncliffe is an anachronism.
Frequency on this line must be increased
Peak hour gaps present- not good.
Negative people... have a problem for every solution.

A number of places have single platforms, even in Japan, the land of passenger rail.

Frequency is inadequate, especially in afternoon peak, and morning peak can be Very full.  Since loadings are high at the outer stations - especially Sandgate and North Boondall - a full train STAYS full the entire run.

I've no problem with the Shorncliffe single platform, but a single effective platform at Sandgate Is anachronistic, and will change with next year's upgrade.

Good connections to Redcliffe peninsula buses at Sandgate, but faster buses from RP to N Boondall along the Deagon deviation would speed things up for many pax - the Kippa Ring line won't arrive tomorrow.

Erratic linkages to Corinda/Ipswich/South Bank lines are confusing, and it would be better linked to Richlands or Cleveland on a permanent basis.

Even with the KR line, your suggestion is still required IMO.

My vote will continue to decrease each year until the frequency is increased.

The single platform at Shorncliffe leaves little margin for late-running trains if you want to improve the frequency.  Duplication of the remaining single line and the second platform at Shorncliffe would come at a fraction of the cost of the Keperra-Ferny Grove project.

How much would both of those things cost?  What if you just duplicated the bit between the stations, if the reservation is big enough.  I expect it may be half the cost for less than half the benefit.

I still don't see why there is such a problem with crew swaps.
