Exclusive: NSW Government used 2017 Sydney Trains timetable change to CONvince Bankstown Line commuters into supporting Sydney Metro Southwest: Sydenham to Bankstown
Western and South West Sydney commuters disadvantaged under 2017 Timetable and “More Trains, More Services” program with increased travel times.
Documents obtained by Restore Inner West Line show the Cumberland Council area is the worst affected by cuts to Sydney Trains services.
History shows that the Liverpool via Regents Park train (former Inner West Line) opened in 1924 to reduce congestion on the Western Line between Lidcombe and Granville. The government’s decision to cut the Liverpool via Regents Park route in 2013 has increased overcrowding on the Western Line.
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!
There’s no improvement under the new timetable for Berala commuters. It’s time to restore the Inner West Line to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park!
Instead of More Trains, More Services – the new 2017 timetable is slower trains and less direct services especially in comparison to the 1930s
Over 100 fast trains are being cut from Lidcombe with overcrowding rising due to Sydney Train’s failure to restore the Inner West Line in the new timetable.
Exclusive documents obtained by Restore Inner West Line exposes the flawed community consultation process for the new 2017 train timetable.
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
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.

Most stations between Liverpool and Bankstown still have large service gaps of 30 minutes and multiple interchanges are still required at Birrong and Lidcombe stations
Liverpool commuters will be disadvantaged by the new draft train timetable recently released by Transport for NSW
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.
Liverpool will lose 30% of fast train services to the City under the new timetable and won’t receive any improvements from the Sydney Metro at Bankstown
