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
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
More Cuts and Slower Trains are coming to Western Sydney: Bankstown Line to be cut at Cabramatta and Richmond to lose all express trains to City
EXCLUSIVE: Western Line upgrade dumped by Gladys Berejiklian to force more drivers onto the M4 WestConnex to increase toll revenue.
Documents obtained by Restore Inner West Line show the Cumberland Council area is the worst affected by cuts to Sydney Trains services.
History shows that the Liverpool via Regents Park train (former Inner West Line) opened in 1924 to reduce congestion on the Western Line between Lidcombe and Granville. The government’s decision to cut the Liverpool via Regents Park route in 2013 has increased overcrowding on the Western Line.
Sydney transport is a mess. Premier Gladys Berejiklian is presiding over a total frenzy of private toll road building that is sucking billions out of public transport for generations to come.
Cumberland Council has passed motions for fast trains at Lidcombe, Auburn, Clyde & Granville and the Inner West Line restored for Berala & Regents Park
The new train timetable fails to deliver for the Cumberland Council area, in particular with Lidcombe, Auburn and Granville losing fast trains and Berala and Regents Park continuing to be worse off with the failure to restore the Inner West Line
The new train timetable penalises people living in Western Sydney with commuters facing longer journey times, fewer stops and fewer direct services.
