The cuts keep on coming for Lidcombe with more trains to skip the station in the upcoming timetable change. From 30 September, T1 Western Line trains will no longer stop at Lidcombe between 6am to 10pm on weekdays…
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.
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.
The slower trains and less direct services timetable has rolled out across the Sydney Trains network much to the disgust of commuters.
Restore Inner West Line would like to acknowledge the support of many Councillors and community advocacy groups in this important public transport campaign
There’s no improvement under the new timetable for Berala commuters. It’s time to restore the Inner West Line to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park!
Instead of More Trains, More Services – the new 2017 timetable is slower trains and less direct services especially in comparison to the 1930s
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.
In 1930, Berala to City: 22 minutes direct train. 2017: at least 32 minutes and a forced interchange at Lidcombe. Time to #RestoreInnerWestLine now!
