Residents of Auburn and Bankstown electorates have nominated the lack of direct train services to the City as the most pressing transport issue
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 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.
The Sydenham to Bankstown Metro will cut all direct trains to City for 9 stations West of Bankstown forcing 19,000 commuters to interchange
Overwhelming 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
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
