-After the introduction of all Waratah Series 2, the whole of Sydney Trains will be air conditioned.
-The stations along the Bankstown line can be upgraded and lifts can be installed without converting the line to metro operation.
-Instead of converting the line into metro operation to free up the city circle, just one new extra Sydney Trains station after Central can be constructed to divert T3 Line trains there.
-Not converting the Bankstown Line will result in loss of jobs but construction of a new Sydney Trains station in the city will create jobs for those who have lost them.
-The extra station will also expand the rail network instead of replacing existing lines.
-When the new station is complete it will allow for more frequent Sydney Trains services on the T3 Bankstown Line as well as the T2 and T8 Lines.
-If the metro doesnt continue to the Bankstown Line, it will allow for the metro to service other suburbs which do not have any existing rail lines.
-This alternative does not force people to change at Bankstown to continue their journey West to Lidcombe and Liverpool
-Also as the T3 Line will no longer use the City Circle, delays on the T2 or T8 Line will not affect the Bankstown Line.
-No disruptions for commuters during construction
It basically achieves everything the Metro does but with less disruption, cost and no protests
