T3 Bankstown line school holiday trackwork
Stations between Bankstown and Sydenham will be closed from Monday 28 June to Sunday 11 July as essential works are carried out to deliver the Sydney Metro & Southwest project.
If you commute via the T3 Bankstown Line you should plan ahead with temporary public transport changes in place for the winter school holidays.
Frequent bus services and additional trains will ensure you can continue to get where you need to go during the temporary disruption.
There will be 180 additional buses to run hundreds of extra services with a bus every three minutes during the busiest part of the morning peak on the T3 Bankstown line.
More train services will also be added to the network, including 180 extra trains per day on the T8 Airport & South Line to complement the buses. There will be bus marshals and customer service staff to help customers on the ground at impacted stations.
This work is being done during the school holiday period as there are less people on the network, which reduces the impact on the community, with an estimated 40 per cent decrease in patronage during weekdays.
The work will see upgrades to ensure all stations will be fully accessible with level access platforms and lifts when metro services start in 2024. Customers on the line will benefit from a new fully-air conditioned metro train every four minutes in the peak in each direction.
The work to upgrade Sydenham Station for metro rail is coming to an end with two new station entrances added, a brand new fully-accessible concourse and metro platforms built, and other improvements to make it easier to interchange between Sydney Trains, metro rail, and buses.
