Western Sydney Commuters Will Soon Be Hit With Longer Travel Times

It is enough of a struggle to get on the train after a long day at work, and now all thanks to a new train timetable… it's gonna take us even longer to get home!

This will be the biggest overhaul of Sydney's rail timetable in four years and it will begin next Sunday.

The new timetable will force travellers to switch train lines mid-journey.

The Sydney Morning Herald has stated that T2 services will now begin at Leppington. Which means that commuters travelling from Campbelltown to stations on the Western Line - including Parramatta, Granville and Strathfield - will have to change at Glenfield.

Extra trains will be added to the Bankstown Line, but during peak times trains will skip more stations than usual. 

More express trains will be added between Parramatta and the CBD on the T1 Western Line, but will result in Harris Park, Granville, Clyde, Auburn and Lidcombe being skipped during peak hours.

St Peters in the inner west is one line that will suffer and will have fewer trains and will be forced to catch trains on the T8 Line during peak hours to get to the city.
