No doubt at significant cost, Gladys Berejiklian's Transport for NSW has been decking out Sydney train stations, ferry wharves and bus stops with new signs.
But some of the information is no longer on display, after commuters and Fairfax Media pointed out the signs were erroneous.
At Town Hall station, newly installed directions on platforms one and two were telling passengers to go to the wrong place.
The signs said that trains on platform one travel to Emu Plains or Richmond via Central, and Epping via Strathfield.
They said trains on platform two travel to Campbelltown via Granville.
That information would have been correct – if it was reversed.
In fact, trains on platform one travel to Campbelltown via Granville, and trains on platform two travel to Emu Plains or Richmond and Epping via Strathfield.
After a report by Fairfax Media pointed out the error on Friday morning, the erroneous information had been blocked out by lunchtime.
Since Ms Berejiklian took over as Transport Minister she has overseen a "branding" overhaul for Sydney’s public transport system.
All forms of public transport are now linked under a common ‘‘hop’’ logo, which was developed at a cost of more than $1 million.
Fairfax Media asked Ms Berejiklian and Transport for NSW on Friday morning how much the new signage program was costing and how long the incorrect sign had been in place.
As well as cosmetic changes at stations and wharves, Transport for NSW is also renaming Sydney's train lines.
In the new maps produced by the department, all lines are designated by a number, preceded by a "T" to indicate they are train services.
The North, Shore, Western and Northern Lines are designated "T1". The Airport, Inner West & South Lines are "T2"; the Bankstown Line is "T3"; the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra Line is "T4"; the Cumberland Line between Campbelltown and Schofields is "T5"; the Carlingford Line is "T6" and the "T7".
Major bus routes are planned to have a "B" in front of them, and ferry services a "F".
A spokeswoman for Sydney Trains said the incorrect information had been covered to avoid confusion.
“Providing consistent and useful information to train customers is a priority for Sydney Trains and we apologise to customers for this error,’’ the spokeswoman said.
‘‘Sydney Trains can confirm that platforms on the sign are correct, however the line information is incorrect. The sign was put in place yesterday,’’ she said.
‘‘Customer service staff are present on the platforms and announcements being made to ensure customers are informed of the correct line information.
Sydney Trains is working with the contractor in question to replace the signage with the correct information.”
The incorrect signs at Town Hall were pointed out on Twitter on Thursday night by public transport advocate @kypros1992, before Fairfax Media verified the error.
