This is bound to cause reliability issues given you can only load a single bus at a time in the interchange.
A similar situation occurred during the timetable change on 30 September 2018 where most outbound off-peak weekday 288 services which ran from City - Erskine Street to Macquarie Park - Herring Road were extended to Epping Station - Cambridge Street (and vice versa in the opposite direction - to create a frequent 15 min frequency along the route between Epping and City to provide extra capacity for passengers displaced by the then closure of the Epping to Chatswood line and also to alleviate overcrowding on the overburdened M54 (which is now the 550).
Originally, there were two 288 services per hour departing Epping at :13 and :43 past the hour on weekdays, with hourly 291 service would depart on :57 past the hour, but since there are now route 288 services at :13, :28, :43 and :58 past the hour, the 288 service departing Epping at 58 min past the hour ends up following the 291 (departing Epping a minute earlier at 57 min past the hour) through Macquarie University before heading their separate ways shortly after leaving Macquarie Centre.
Living at the north end of the 513 & 535. and the confluence of 513, 535, 546, 549, 550, 553, 625 & 630.
