Southwest Sydney travel times to City will increase by 17 minutes due to Sydenham – Bankstown Metro without additional Western Line tracks
We condemn Planning Minister Anthony Roberts and the NSW Government for ignoring the community in proceeding with the “Sydenham to Bankstown” Metro Southwest. We call on both sides of government to cancel this project and commit to a restoration of the Inner West Line to Liverpool (and Bankstown) via Regents Park on the Sydney Trains heavy rail network.
Statement on Metro extension to Yagoona: We continue our opposition to the conversion of the Bankstown Line. Upgraded Heavy Rail not Metro is what’s needed.
The government’s confirmed: Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Chester Hill, Leightonfield, Villawood, Carramar, Birrong and Yagoona will have NO trains to City!
