Cumberland Council endorses restoring Inner West Line – Liverpool via Regents Park

The Restore Inner West Line – Liverpool via Regents Park community action group is delighted at Cumberland Council’s support to bring back our train services and to keep our stations open

The NSW Government has never been able to justify the removal of our train services in October 2013 and it is through the efforts of our local community that has forced the backtracking of plans to close our train stations

If Transport for NSW follows through with restoring the Inner West Line’s City to Liverpool via Regents Park train, this will mean commuters at Berala, Regents Park, Chester Hill etc will no longer be forced to interchange at Lidcombe and Birrong

The motion to restore the City to Liverpool via Regents Park train passed by Cumberland Council on 19 February 2020 should be implemented by Transport for NSW as soon as possible is well written given that there is capacity now to bring back our train services

Parking and traffic congestion should ease in Lidcombe as the direct train reduces the number of commuters from west of Bankstown currently driving to Lidcombe to avoid multiple interchanges

This campaign to bring back our trains is also thanks to the efforts of our volunteers, local representatives, supporters and community activists such as Save T3, Battler, EcoTransit, Fix NSW etc

Thank you for joining the fight to bring back our trains on the City to Liverpool via Regents Park route which ensures that our stations and services will exist beyond the historical poster on the wall of the Berala Hotel

We look forward to continuing in helping to improve transport in Cumberland and we sincerely thank Council for the support especially with passing its third motion in support of restoring the Inner West Line’s City to Liverpool via Regents Park train service on 19 February 2020

Canterbury-Bankstown Council and Liverpool City Council will also vote on motions to restore the Inner West Line – City to Liverpool via Regents Park train service in the coming week
