Restore Inner West Line

Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park Trains

The State Government’s train cuts over the past 5 years are the worst downgrade to public transport in a generation!

2013: Removing the T2 Inner West Line from Liverpool via Regents Park forces additional interchanges at Birrong, Lidcombe, Strathfield

Overcrowding has also increased on the Western Line and Leppington Line resulting from Gladys Berejiklian’s attacks on public transport

2017: Instead of restoring T2 trains to Liverpool (and Bankstown), the T2 now replaces fast trains for Lidcombe, Auburn, Clyde, Granville, Harris Park

Transport for NSW has been unable to provide evidence that reliability has improved as a direct result of the Inner West Line cuts and timetable changes. Restore Inner West Line – Liverpool via Regents Park & Save T3 Bankstown Line community action group explains train cuts and line changes since 2013:

What the community says:

“To get to the city now takes numerous changes. There is more congestion with people at Lidcombe station”

“Five stops 50 minutes from Berala to Strathfield – what a disgrace”

“I feel unsafe changing trains at Birrong, especially at night time, my travelling time has dramatically increased since the instalment of the new timetable, and the lack of trains is a huge burden and cause of great inconvenience”

“I hate having to catch 2 if not 3 trains now to get to the city on what has been for years a main route”

Case Study: Sefton to Homebush
Inner West Line (Liverpool via Regents Park) until 2013: 16 minute direct train
After 2013’s timetable changes: up to 53 minutes, with interchanges at Birrong, Lidcombe, Strathfield
