RIWL Secures Bankstown Line Guarantee

Restore Inner West Line's "Protect Our Rail" campaign has been successful in lobbying Transport for NSW to maintain T3 Bankstown Line train services between Bankstown and Liverpool.

Following the "Restore 'our' rail" article in the Liverpool Champion, Restore Inner West Line has been informed by Transport for NSW and Sydney Metro that the T3 Bankstown Line will not be shortened at Cabramatta.

Sydney Trains will maintain services for all stations beyond Bankstown including to Liverpool and Lidcombe.

This is a major win for the community and for public transport in South West Sydney.

Restore Inner West Line will be monitoring developments to ensure that Transport for NSW keeps it word in maintaining T3 Bankstown Line train services and campaigning for the reinstatement of regular Liverpool (and Bankstown) via Regents Park trains.
