Canterbury-Bankstown Council's refusal to fight against Sydney Metro is a betrayal to our local community
Up to 19,000 commuters from west of Bankstown will be worse off with no trains to Redfern, Central/City Circle
Sydney Metro will undermine residential homes and lead to over-development in our local community
Update: We have obtained Sydney Metro planning documents for replacing Yagoona and Birrong Station with bus or light rail in the long term Future Transport Strategy
Update 18/7/21: Birrong and Yagoona Station to close due to new Parramatta to Kogarah via Bankstown line
Update 26/11/20: Metro will not extend to Yagoona as trackless tram/bus is being considered for Bankstown to Liverpool
Transport Minister Andrew Constance has confirmed that an extension to the Sydney Metro Southwest to Yagoona station is being considered as Bankstown may not be the ideal location for the terminal between Heavy Rail and Metro
We continue our strong opposition to the conversion of the T3 Bankstown Line.
Upgraded Heavy Rail not Metro is what’s needed. The Metro plans are plans for over-development and benefit developers not the public transport needs of the community. Yagoona is not suitable for an interchange with the lack of accessible lifts, lack of parking and lack of bus facilities.
The Metro should stop at Sydenham and proceed south along the F6 corridor instead of the motorway.
Restoring the Inner West Line to Liverpool and Bankstown via Regents Park is the public transport fix that the community needs not a Metro train that isolates stations west of Bankstown.

Metro to Yagoona is a Trojan horse for increased high-rise. The government's future proposed extension of Metro Southwest to Liverpool would require a tunnel to be constructed from Yagoona with Gazzard Park being the likely entry point given the green space's close proximity to the station
Metro at Yagoona would likely impact on neighbouring houses especially with future extension plans to Liverpool and reduce existing car parking spaces given the need to accommodate possibly up to 4 trains side by side
Yagoona is arguably a "better" location (than Bankstown) for a cross-platform interchange (between Heavy Rail and Metro) and terminal of the Metro given the greater availability of land on either side of the existing railway station.
