We condemn Planning Minister Anthony Roberts and the NSW Government for ignoring the community in proceeding with the “Sydenham to Bankstown” Metro Southwest. We call on both sides of government to cancel this project and commit to a restoration of the Inner West Line to Liverpool (and Bankstown) via Regents Park on the Sydney Trains heavy rail network.
The Auburn area is on the front-line of this government’s attacks on Western Sydney and public transport! Help us fight back by taking our Transport Survey
Transport for NSW data show removal of Liverpool via Regents Park trains caused most significant increase in travel times across Sydney
Angry commuters have rallied in Regents Park over 5 years of cuts to trains especially the removal of the Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park services
The contrast between North Shore and Western Sydney could not be greater because of Gladys Berejiklian’s attacks on public transport.
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
What was once a direct train now requires at least 2 interchanges and 3 different trains! It’s time to #RestoreInnerWestLine
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
EXCLUSIVE: Western Line upgrade dumped by Gladys Berejiklian to force more drivers onto the M4 WestConnex to increase toll revenue.
