Signalling Beats Metro

Updated: Jun 8

Upgrading signalling on the existing Sydney Trains Network is a faster and a better value alternative than replacing working train lines with Metro


The Sydney Trains Network can run trains every 2 minutes with digital signalling upgrades


Sydney Metro only has trains every 4 minutes in peak and government documents show no plans to increase frequency of services


Transport Minister Andrew Constance has publicly stated that upgrades to existing infrastructure can deliver services every 2 to 3 minutes on the Sydney Trains Network



Four former Sydney railway executives have also warned that converting Sydenham to Bankstown into Metro reduces the overall reliability of the Sydney Trains Network and that upgrading signalling achieves better outcomes



Sydney's Rail Network Map 2036 with Metro Southwest extended from Bankstown to Liverpool


This map provided by Transport for NSW shows 15 trains per hour during peak from Liverpool to Sydney CBD on the Metro Southwest line via Bansktown and Sydenham


15 Metro trains per hour is a train every 3 minutes


With the NSW Government already facing a $3 billion dollar blowout with the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project and the NSW Legislative Council Inquiry into the Sydenham - Bankstown line recommending that the conversion not take place, it would be common sense for the project to be cancelled


Unfortunately, this government is focused on increasing over-development along the Bankstown Line instead of actually improving public transport


Please write to Transport Minister Andrew Constance urging him to release the full business case for Sydney Metro City & Southwest, Save T3 Bankstown Line and Restore Inner West Line (Liverpool via Regents Park)
