Yes, I reported that I believed the Matildas were in Canberra. I was confident enough to post after receiving advice from a Transport Canberra official.
The post arose from an enquiry I placed through the Access Canberra feedback system in which I quoted the Minister's Press Release, pointed out that TC had nothing I could find, despite the advice in the Release, and mentioned the preparation details referred to in the Release. As introduction to service was overdue, I asked about progress, if any, and even wondered if the supplier had failed to meet the arrangement.
The result, was a reponse in my AccessCanberra file, requesting me to ring a certain official. In phone conversation with that Transport Canberra official it seemed that person thought I had been sent an email response but I never received any email, nor was it in my Access file. The request to contact by phone was to update the email information (which didn't get). The official assured me, and re-assured me that all was going well and, specifically confirmed that the vehicles were actually here and it was expected they would be be launched in late March or possibly April.
I am far from happy at being officially misinformed and equally unhappy that, because the substantive response was verbal, I have no written record of that response. But I did acknowledge it through AccessCanberra in writing thanking for the phoned response and commenting on how good this trial should be. So there was ample opportunity to correct any mis-information.
