What’s this about?
Sydney Metro is Australia’s largest public transport project. Services started in May 2019 in the city’s North West with a train every four minutes in the peak. Metro rail will be extended into the CBD and beyond to Bankstown in 2024. There will be new CBD metro railway stations underground at Martin Place, Pitt Street and Barangaroo and new metro platforms at Central.
As part of the Sydney Metro City and Southwest project, the upgrade of the T3 Bankstown Line to metro standards between Sydenham and Bankstown received planning approval on 19 December 2018. All stations will be fully accessible with lifts and level access between platforms and trains.
The T3 Bankstown Line will stay open throughout most of the construction for the Sydney Metro City and Southwest, although some temporary closures are required while the rail line is being upgraded and converted to Metro standards.
The next set of upgrade works will take place between Sydenham and Bankstown stations from Saturday 2 July 2022 to Saturday 16 July 2022. This closure is planned to take place in the July school holidays when there are fewer customers on the rail network.
TfNSW will operate the Sydenham to Bankstown Temporary Transport Plan (TTP), where buses will replace trains during this time. To accommodate these buses and ensure minor disruption to traffic, some temporary changes to kerbside parking are proposed around stations between Sydenham and Bankstown, as well as Lidcombe, and Central.
