Get trains back on track invite

PUBLIC feedback is open on three options for the future of train and metro services west of Bankstown under consideration by Transport for NSW (TfNSW).

Under option one, commuters at Carramar, Villawood, Leightonfield, Chester Hill, Sefton, Regents Park, Berala, Birrong and Yagoona, would have to interchange for trains to Sydney city.‚Ä®TfNSW’s preferred second option, would see services which now operate between Liverpool and the City Circle via Bankstown, instead run via Regents Park, with shuttle train services between Lidcombe and Bankstown. This would leave Birrong and Yagoona customers interchanging at Bankstown for Metro services or traveling to Lidcombe to access other destinations.
The third option would see Birrong become the main interchange point for customers switching between the two Bankstown Line branches.
Roydon Ng from the Save T3 Bankstown Line and Restore Inner West Line group, said they continue to oppose the removal of direct trains services from Liverpool to Bankstown and the forced use of Regents Park as an interchange.
He said the group will also continue its campaign for the restoration of direct train services to the City Circle for all T3 Bankstown Line stations including Birrong and Yagoona.
State MP for Bankstown, Tania Mihailuk, says she will also continue to fight for the full restoration of the services.
“It’s also clear that alternative options must be considered to ensure commuters west of Bankstown are not disadvantaged and that the Southwest Metro doesn’t end up being a colossal failure,” she said.
“I strongly urge commuters to submit their input and feedback about the proposed Metro via the Transport NSW website.”
The final option chosen by the NSW Government is expected to be confirmed late this year, and commuters can offer their own feedback at
