We call on the State Government and Opposition to prioritise the following infrastructure projects for the Strathfield – Lidcombe – Bankstown – Cabramatta – Liverpool areas.
Transport for NSW has admitted that 2013’s cutting of the Inner West Line at Homebush (disguised as the separation of the T3 Bankstown Line) was a mistake.
The new train timetable will be of little comfort to commuters in Sydney’s South West and Inner West with travel times doubling and direct services cut.
What was once a 16 minute direct train from Sefton to Homebush, a journey of just 7 stations now takes 36 minutes, 3 trains with 2 interchanges in 2017.
No reason why Inner West Line can’t be reconnected to Bankstown & Liverpool via Regents Park given that track capacity exists for its Parramatta extension.
Rail between Homebush – Lidcombe to be overcrowded: Transport for NSW’s own predictions after cutting the Inner West Line in 2013
