Restore Inner West Line calls on Sydney Metro and Transport for NSW to engage in genuine community consultation regarding the shutdown and conversion of the T3 Bankstown Line.
According to Sydney Metro, responses collected in this survey will affect the Sydenham to Bankstown Environmental Impact Statement.
However the refusal to allow customers to write down their suggestions e.g. restoring the Inner West Line (Bankstown to City via Regents Park) undermines the survey’s effectiveness in consulting with the community.
With Sydney Metro acknowledging that the Sydenham to Bankstown section of the project will not improve reliability, the government must be upfront with the community about their public transport.
