How Cuts to Trains Impact the West of Bankstown
Restore Inner West Line
FIX NSW TRANSPORT: PUBLIC TRANSPORT NOT TOLL ROADS
Restore Inner West Line Community Action Group
Restore Inner West Line is a Community Action Group campaigning for public transport improvements and sustainable development in the electorates of Strathfield, Auburn, Granville, Bankstown, Fairfield and Liverpool.
Founded in 2013 with the support of the then State Member for Auburn (Barbara Perry) and the Member for Bankstown (Tania Mihailuk), local residents joined together at community meetings and rallies to protest the then Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian’s cut to Inner West Line (City to Liverpool via Regents Park and City to Bankstown via Regents Park) train services.
We have worked with local councils (e.g. Strathfield, Auburn, Cumberland, Liverpool) and other like-minded community groups (e.g. The Battler, No WestConnex, FIX NSW Transport, Sydenham-Bankstown Alliance, EcoTransit Sydney) in the fight to improve public transport in Sydney, oppose privitisation of services, and to stop over-development.
We thank the NSW Labor Party, NSW Greens and the many other candidates who committed restoring the Inner West Line (City to Liverpool via Regents Park and City to Bankstown via Regents Park), and a review of the Sydney Trains timetable prior to the March 2019 State Election. We will continue to work with of all sides of government to improve public transport in the community.
Our campaign is also focused on achieving accessibility upgrades and NightRide bus services for all stations west of Bansktown.
We are not part of any political party and rely solely on volunteer contributions
Fighting for better Public Transport in Sydney's Inner West, South West and Western suburbs
The NSW government has not only made our travel to the city inconvenient, but increased our travel time, and not provided the appropriate staff and resources for us to change platforms safely at interchange stations
Commuters now faced slower trains on the Western Line; trains on the express no longer stopping at stations in the electorate; and no improvement on changes made under the 2013 timetable for Berala and Regents Park which drastically reduced services
The action group is calling for the restoration of the Inner West line, a route that was cut in 2013, which will allow commuters from Liverpool to travel to the city via Regents Park, adding it would reduce overcrowding
Many Bankstown Line stations will have to wait 25 minutes for trains as the timetable has uneven stopping patterns, especially between Liverpool and Bankstown, and Fairfield is largely left with a slow train to the city via Granville/Inner West
We Need Your Support
We need your help to fight for more public transport and to expose the government cover-up. The communities of Strathfield, Auburn, Granville, Bankstown, Fairfield, Cabramatta and Liverpool are suffering from a lack of adequate public transport services as a result of cuts to trains over the past 7 years. Liverpool to City via Regents Park and Bankstown to City via Regents Park needs our trains back. We are looking for volunteers to assist with our campaign including letterbox drops and researching public transport. Please contact Roydon Ng on 0426 500 330 or send us an email if you are interested in being involved. We are also happy to send flyers and printed copies of the petition to your postal address
