Fri 12 May - $176m well spent...?
I don't think so, and not just because I'm an IT guy. Put this in perspective - they are running PDP-11s from the early 1970s; there would not be too many organisations that have managed to make an IT investment last that long. So when you consider what's NOT been spent in the intervening decades (yes, I know about the failed project from a few years ago) it's not really a lot. Especially when you think how much was spent on Southern Cross Station. That's simply a monument to Weasel Batchelor's huge ego - this new system, if properly implemented will finally give Connex the foundations for some major improvements in service delivery... bring it on!
I'm on the 09:11 after taking my daughter to school... it's about five minutes late and dumps us on platform 12.
Home on the 17:38 and it's on time.
