Liverpool and South West Sydney commuters can expect significant increases in travel times as a result of the Metro Southwest project on the T3 Bankstown Line. Government documents show estimations of journey times from Liverpool to City increasing by 17 minutes.
The government’s own ‘Sydney’s Rail Future Implementation Plan’ suggest a remedy to the increased travel times for Liverpool, Cabramatta, Warwick Farm and Casula commuters with the construction of additional tracks of the Western Line.
However, Transport for NSW has said that there will be no upgrades to the existing Western Line in the near future, with the possibility of additional tracks being deferred until 2040.
Commuters from Sydney’s South West can expect significantly increased travel times and increased interchanges for journeys to the City Circle, with the T3 Bankstown Line Metro Southwest removing all express trains from Liverpool.
