Government documents show plans to close stations and replace trains with bus services between Bankstown and Cabramatta once Sydney Metro SW is constructed
Documents obtained by Restore Inner West Line show the Cumberland Council area is the worst affected by cuts to Sydney Trains services.
We call on the State Government and Opposition to prioritise the following infrastructure projects for the Strathfield – Lidcombe – Bankstown – Cabramatta – Liverpool areas.
The new train timetable fails to deliver for the Cumberland Council area, in particular with Lidcombe, Auburn and Granville losing fast trains and Berala and Regents Park continuing to be worse off with the failure to restore the Inner West Line
The new train timetable penalises people living in Western Sydney with commuters facing longer journey times, fewer stops and fewer direct services.
Restore Inner West Line would like to acknowledge the support of many Councillors and community advocacy groups in this important public transport campaign
More downgrades, cuts to trains and slower services to the City for many stations from the Inner West to South West Sydney in the new timetable
