Calls for underground station at Bankstown

Calls for underground station at Bankstown The City of Canterbury Bankstown has called on the NSW Government to incorporate an underground railway station at Bankstown, as part of its proposed Sydenham to Bankstown South West Metro line. Yes city of canterbury bankstown sydenham station underground  

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has called on the NSW Government to incorporate an underground railway station at Bankstown, as part of its proposed Sydenham to Bankstown South West Metro line.

Administrator Richard Colley said the construction of the new Metro has the potential to transform Bankstown into a vibrant liveable CBD and drive broader economic growth.

 

 

"Unfortunately, draft plans that we have seen do not deliver any of these benefits," Mr Colley said.

"Today, we have released an alternate vision for Bankstown, including an underground station that enables the currently divided city to be integrated and developed to its full, urban potential."

Council believes its alternate vision would have the following benefits for Bankstown and the broader South West:

  • Undergrounding ensures that land above the corridor can be utilised for renewal development and the creation of new civic spaces which support urban growth and create liveable places; and
  • The undergrounding at Bankstown Station provides the opportunity for a future connection to Liverpool and further on to Western Sydney Airport (WSA).

The Council’s announcement follows the Government’s recent decision to construct a $12 billion underground rail line from the Sydney CBD to Parramatta.

"We’re only looking for a short two-kilometre stretch of the new Sydenham to Bankstown South West Metro rail line to be constructed underground," Mr Colley said.

"For such a small outlay, compared to the Sydney to Parramatta project, the north and south of Bankstown’s CBD could be linked, for the first time, without obstruction.

"As I have previously stated, from a transport perspective, the South West Metro will be great for our City, but the Government has a real opportunity to finally integrate the Bankstown CBD at the same time.

"We had a very successful meeting with our local Members of Parliament where we shared our vision and hope it will now receive wider support from the community and NSW Government."

Mr Colley said Council will also continue to advocate for improvements to the designs of other stations along the Sydenham to Bankstown South West Metro line.
