Sydenham to Bankstown upgrade

The NSW Government is delivering Sydney Metro, Australia’s biggest public transport project extending from Sydney’s north west, under Sydney Harbour through new underground city stations and beyond to Bankstown in Sydney’s south west.


Stations between Campsie and Sydenham, along the T3 Bankstown Line, will temporarily close between 24 December 2019 and 5 January 2020 while the train line is being upgraded to metro standards.


During this period, up to 90 buses in the busiest part of the day will operate to provide extra services between Punchbowl and Central Stations to keep customers moving over the holiday period.

 Key features of the temporary bus plan include:


• Frequent, all stops bus services connecting closed stations along the T3 Bankstown Line.
• Express and limited stops services during peak and off peak periods for trips towards Sydenham or Central
• Evening bus services to reflect customer demand
• Low floor accessible buses will be provided on the majority of services between Punchbowl and Central
• Bus marshals or station staff will also be available during the busiest parts of the day to provide assistance to customers with accessible needs.

Planned works at Sydenham Station will also impact the T4 Illawarra Line with buses replacing trains between Hurstville and Central Stations from 24 to 28 December 2019.

Train services will continue to operate on the T3 Bankstown Line while stations between Sydenham and Campsie are temporarily closed during upgrade work.

  • T3 Line services to Central via Lidcombe Station will be provided for customers at Campsie, Belmore, Lakemba, Wiley Park, Punchbowl, Bankstown, Yagoona, Birrong, Regents Park and Berala Stations.
  • T2 Line services will be provided between Liverpool and Central via Regents Park and Lidcombe stations.
