The “Homebush bottleneck” is a hoax invented by the NSW Government as an excuse for cutting train services and to privatise the railway by stealth
The government’s confirmed: Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Chester Hill, Leightonfield, Villawood, Carramar, Birrong and Yagoona will have NO trains to City!
The contrast between North Shore and Western Sydney could not be greater because of Gladys Berejiklian’s attacks on public transport.
Government documents show plans to close stations and replace trains with bus services between Bankstown and Cabramatta once Sydney Metro SW is constructed
Restore Inner West Line would like to acknowledge the support of many Councillors and community advocacy groups in this important public transport campaign
More downgrades, cuts to trains and slower services to the City for many stations from the Inner West to South West Sydney in the new timetable
The new train timetable will be of little comfort to commuters in Sydney’s South West and Inner West with travel times doubling and direct services cut.
What was once a 16 minute direct train from Sefton to Homebush, a journey of just 7 stations now takes 36 minutes, 3 trains with 2 interchanges in 2017.
Reinstating the City to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park train is the best solution to reduce disruptions caused by the T3 Bankstown Line shutdowns
Candidates contesting September’s Council elections in Cumberland and Canterbury-Bankstown are invited to support restoring Inner West Line trains.
