Sydenham to Bankstown

About Sydenham to Bankstown

The T3 Bankstown Line is being upgraded and converted to metro between Sydenham and Bankstown with all stations to be fully accessible with lifts and level access between platforms and trains.

The Environmental Impact Statement for this project was on display last year and about 560 submissions were received. The Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report for the Sydenham to Bankstown Metro Upgrade is on exhibition until July 2018. Community information sessions are being held later in June and July, find out more.

You can view a summary of the project in the Sydenham to Bankstown Preferred Infrastructure Report Overview.

The Submissions and Preferred Infrastructure Report for Sydenham to Bankstown metro upgrade and accompanying documents may be viewed on the NSW Department of Planning and Environment website and sydneymetro.info/documents.

Room for 100,000 extra customers across Sydney

Sydney Metro, together with signalling and infrastructure upgrades across the existing network, will increase the capacity of train services across Sydney from about 120 an hour today, to up to 200 services an hour beyond 2024.

After the conversion, metro trains from Bankstown will run at least every four minutes in the peak, or 15 trains an hour.

The metro network will be fully segregated from the existing Sydney Trains network between Sydenham and Bankstown, improving the reliability of services on the line. Interchange between Sydney Metro and Sydney Trains at both locations will be provided, with improvements to station way-finding and signage.
