Wed-Fri 15-17 March - Perth
It wasn't planned this way, but it's worked out quite well because I'll miss the first few days of the Games commuting chaos. As it happens I'm pretty comfortable with the plan to catch the train in and cycle home... wonder if I'll have the commitment to make that a permanent arrangement...?
I received a response from the weasel Batchelor's department to an email I sent reminding him that he'd been promising us the public transport system was fine and would cope with the Games - I pointed him to this blog entry. The response included the following statement "Around 30,000 extra public transport services have been scheduled for the Games period, including more than 700 extra train services on the metropolitan network." Do you think he knows that we know that all of these additional services are outside peak hour, so will not help commuters at all? Perhaps he thinks we're all just too dumb to realise?
