Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
The $26 million contract to deliver the metro upgrade of the T3 Bankstown Line between Sydenham and Bankstown in Sydney has been awarded.
Metron T2M, a joint venture between Arcadis Australia Pacific and Mott MacDonald Australia , will deliver design services for the stations and the railway corridor between Marrickville and Punchbowl.
The metro upgrade means all eleven stations will be fully accessible, including:
Corridor works will include the design of cabling systems, track, upgrades to bridges including anti-throw screens, retaining walls and security fencing along the corridor.
In 2024, customers using the upgraded Bankstown Line stations will get 15 trains an hour during the peak in each direction — a major boost to train services for customers.
Currently on the Bankstown Line, stations like Hurlstone Park and Canterbury get as few as four trains an hour in the peak.
Early works are already underway to convert the T3 Bankstown Line to Sydney Metro standards, with survey work and geotechnical investigations taking place within the rail corridor.
