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!
Overwhemling 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 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
9 stations (Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Chester Hill, Leightonfield, Villawood, Carramar, Birrong and Yagoona) lose ALL city trains due to Metro Southwest

Transport for NSW has admitted that 2013’s cutting of the Inner West Line at Homebush (disguised as the separation of the T3 Bankstown Line) was a mistake.
Over 100 fast trains are being cut from Lidcombe with overcrowding rising due to Sydney Train’s failure to restore the Inner West Line in the new timetable.
Liverpool loses fast trains to the City in the latest downgrade of the Sydney Trains timetable. It’s time to #RestoreInnerWestLine for more trains – join our community action group today!
The Bankstown Line closure forcing commuters onto buses, removing City trains for 9 stations and rebuilding 11 stations is all for nothing.
