Say no to Metro Southwest

What Sydney Metro Really Means

The Metro Southwest (Sydenham to Bankstown) forces 19,000 commuters from the western side of the Bankstown Line to interchange
Converting ‘Sydenham – Bankstown’ to Metro is designed to fatten the wallets of property developers at the expense of the community
Cutting the Bankstown Line in half disconnects 9 stations between Berala – Carramar – Yagoona from the rest of Sydney


The Bankstown Line in 2036 according to the NSW Government's Sydney Rail Future Implementation Plan
Go to No Trains to City Circle & Inner West

Metro has 60% less seats than existing double-deck trains therefore most commuters will have to stand up for long distances, and for up to an hour each way to and from work everyday

We support maintaining existing double deck trains on the T3 Bankstown Line, restoring the Inner West Line train for City to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park, and upgrading signalling instead of Metro Southwest

  • Commuters forced to interchange at stations such as Lidcombe, Bankstown, Birrong, Cabramatta, Sydenham, Central for connecting trains

  • Sydenham to Bankstown Metro removes the T3 Bankstown Line express for Liverpool, Warwick Farm, Cabramatta commuters and increases travel times up to 17 minutes for Southwest Sydney

Keep our direct train to City

Gladys Berejiklian isn't content with cutting the Bankstown Line at Lidcombe (and Inner West Line at Homebush) in 2013
So now the government is pressing ahead with even more cuts and downgrades to the Bankstown Line
