KOGARAH and Rockdale rail commuters, who are still seething over the loss of peak-period express services, may be in for even slower journeys in the future.
St Peters and Erskineville railway stations could become new stops on the Illawarra Line when the new Sydney Metro fast-rail system starts operating.
Fully automated, driverless trains on the Metro system will run every few minutes in peak periods from Rouse Hill in the north-west, under Sydney Harbour, through new city stations and on to Bankstown.
St Peters and Erskineville stations, which are serviced by Bankstown trains at present, will be bypassed.
An overview released by Transport for NSW this month said: "St Peters and Erskineville stations will remain open and serviced by Sydney Trains".
Illawarra Line trains once stopped at St Peters and Erskineville stations before linking with the Eastern Suburbs Line and sometimes still do so during track work and emergencies.
