Reduction in Services designed to provide “optimum services for Belair customers”.

That is the offering of a Transport Department spokeswoman to the announcement that peak hour services will be cut on the Belair Line.


As services resume tomorrow on the Belair line residents who use the Glenalta, Pinera, and Belair Stations find their 6 month wait to get back on the train has been gazumpedPeak hour services will now terminate at Blackwood.

So it looks like the humble motor car gets to retain it’s importance.  People used to using this station now are looking to fighting for a carpark at the Blackwood Station or, worse yet for the residents who live on or near Unley Road, continue to drive into town.

Seems like spending of State Government money must be on infrastructure rather than service. You cant provide the service without the infrastructure of course but surely there is no point in building the infrastructure if the service is going to be watered down.

    Don, can Unley Council and Mitcham Council lobby the Government to get the trains to go all the way through the hills.
    This is a joke.
    New infrastructure and less services!
    We people in the hills get forgotten.
    It is going to mean more cars through Unley.
