Residents of Auburn and Bankstown electorates have nominated the lack of direct train services to the City as the most pressing transport issue
Please join us this Thursday 7 March at 10am outside the Sydney Metro shopfront in Campsie (243 Beamish Street) for a silent protest against the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro
Transport Minister Andrew Constance backflips on a promise for more Bankstown Line services on the Sydney Trains network for 9 stations west of Bankstown
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.
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!
The Sydenham to Bankstown Metro will cut all direct trains to City for 9 stations West of Bankstown forcing 19,000 commuters to interchange
Overwhelming majority oppose the Sydenham-Bankstown Metro because 9 stations west of Bankstown loses all direct City trains forcing 19,000 to interchange
Government documents show plans to close stations and replace trains with bus services between Bankstown and Cabramatta once Sydney Metro SW is constructed
The cuts keep on coming for Lidcombe with more trains to skip the station in the upcoming timetable change. From 30 September, T1 Western Line trains will no longer stop at Lidcombe between 6am to 10pm on weekdays…
The North Shore will have 20 trains per hour to City while 9 stations west of Bankstown will soon have NO trains to City because of Sydney Metro
19,000 commuters and nine stations west of Bankstown will lose all trains to the city if the Metro Southwest is constructed from Sydenham to Bankstown
9 stations (Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Chester Hill, Leightonfield, Villawood, Carramar, Birrong and Yagoona) lose ALL city trains due to Metro Southwest
More Cuts and Slower Trains are coming to Western Sydney: Bankstown Line to be cut at Cabramatta and Richmond to lose all express trains to City
Marching through Sydney today, over a thousand protesters including Restore Inner West Line made their issues with New South Wales’ public transport clear including WestConnex, the lack of train services and bus privatisation.
We call on the State Government and Opposition to prioritise the following infrastructure projects for the Strathfield – Lidcombe – Bankstown – Cabramatta – Liverpool areas.
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
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 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
Reinstating the City to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park train is the best solution to reduce disruptions caused by the T3 Bankstown Line shutdowns
