Pardon our regress

If Metro must rewrite their contract, I'm happy to serve as an English language consultant. Fortunately I won't be requiring public transport during evenings next week. A Metro notice in The Age (29/4), oddly headed "progress", informs me as follows:

"Due to track improvement works, buses will replace train services between Newport and Laverton stations after 7:30pm ... [next week]. Train services will run express between Newport and Laverton, and stop all stations to Werribee."

Shank's pony may be a little slower, but at least you'd know what to expect.
