Number One

SYDNEY'S train system is a global laughing stock, with performance levels hopelessly below every major city from Europe to South America, according to a damning independent report buried by CityRail.

Rail experts from Hong Kong were paid by CityRail to compare Sydney with metro systems around the world for efficiency, cost effectiveness, reliability and maintenance.

They found that Sydney lags behind every city on every key indicator – even compared with the rail systems of Santiago in Chile, Bangkok and Moscow.

The results are so embarrassing that, despite having received the report midway through last year, CityRail chief executive Vince Graham still hasn't presented the findings to the RailCorp board or Transport Minister John Watkins.

It's funny what appears around election time. Anyhow, this should silence all those people who think they have worse train system than Sydney.
