Planning for rail services west of Bankstown station in 2024

Cabramatta Station

The NSW Government is delivering Sydney Metro to the city’s south west.

In 2024, customers will have a new metro train every four minutes in the peak from Bankstown to the city and beyond as part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project.

This project includes upgrading the existing T3 Bankstown Line between Bankstown and Sydenham to metro rail standards.

Sydney Metro is a fully-accessible railway: all Sydney Metro stations will have lifts and level access between platforms and trains as well as Australian-first technology like platform screen doors, which keep people and objects like prams away from the tracks.

The new metro rail system means changes have to be made to the existing suburban railway west of Bankstown.

Train services on the T3 Bankstown Line west of Bankstown station will need to operate differently to ensure customers can continue to get where they need to go.

Transport for NSW will ensure customers can continue to make convenient connections on the expanded and more integrated railway network.

Sydney’s first metro, the Metro North West Line, opened in May 2019 with 13 railway stations between Tallawong Station at Rouse Hill and Chatswood Station.

The Sydney Metro City & Southwest project is a 30 kilometre extension of metro rail from Chatswood, under Sydney Harbour, through new CBD stations and south west to Bankstown.
