Sydney transport is a mess. Premier Gladys Berejiklian is presiding over a total frenzy of private toll road building that is sucking billions out of public transport for generations to come.
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.
Cumberland Council has passed motions for fast trains at Lidcombe, Auburn, Clyde & Granville and the Inner West Line restored for Berala & Regents Park
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.
The slower trains and less direct services timetable has rolled out across the Sydney Trains network much to the disgust of commuters.
The new 2017 timetable isn’t more trains, more services but rather slower trains and less direct services!
