Bankstown Station

About Bankstown Station

Customers at Bankstown Station will have a new air-conditioned metro train every four minutes in the peak – that’s 15 trains an hour. Bankstown Station is currently serviced by eight trains an hour in the morning peak.

The station will be upgraded with level access between platforms and trains, easy interchange with Sydney Trains and platform screen doors to keep people and objects away from the tracks. The existing lifts and entrances will be retained.

Planning and compliance

Sydney Metro received planning approval on 19 December 2018 to upgrade the T3 Bankstown Line between Sydenham and Bankstown to metro standards.

The Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report for the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro upgrade was on exhibition until 18 July 2018.

Station Design and Precinct Plan (SDPP) has been approved for Bankstown Station that shows how the new station design has developed and how it will integrate with the surrounding precinct.

The latest information about planning modifications for Sydenham to Bankstown can be viewed on the NSW Department of Planning and Environment website.
