Restore Inner West Line

Planning for Rail Services West of Bankstown station in 2024

Transport for NSW’s preferred option for west of Bankstown: restoration of (former) Inner West Line’s City to Liverpool via Regents Park service, a shuttle service from Bankstown to Lidcombe, and the removal of direct services between Liverpool and Bankstown

Changes to bus services west of Bankstown will also be made

It is important to note that changing the “Liverpool via Regents Park” trains’ name from “Inner West Line” to “T3 Bankstown Line” doesn’t change the fact that this NSW Government cut the service in 2013

Saving stations west of Bankstown from closure with the restoration of the (former) Inner West Line to Liverpool via Regents Park is important for our community but the fight continues for Birrong and Yagoona’s direct trains to City Circle, and to save the direct train from Liverpool to Bankstown

We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback about the train and bus changes for west of Bankstown, please contact us or email: info@restoreinnerwestline.org.au

The NSW Government is converting the T3 Bankstown Line between Sydenham and Bankstown into Sydney Metro standards

When Sydney Metro City & Southwest opens, customers from Bankstown to Sydenham will no longer have trains to City Circle

All stations between Bankstown and Sydenham will have lifts (funded by the existing Transport Access Program)

The Sydney Metro Southwest project forces changes to be made to the existing Sydney Trains Network to the west of Bankstown

Train services west of Bankstown station will need to operate differently to ensure customers can continue to get where they need to go

Transport for NSW has promised community consultation with customers to the west of Bankstown station about the future railway network

The NSW Government is aiming to open the Sydney Metro City & Southwest in 2024
