NSW introduces new extra services for South West Sydney

Under the ‘More Trains, More Services’ programme, Transport for New South Wales will add 20 extra services including an improved all day link to the Sydney’s north west.
The extra 20 express trains per week in peak hour will be added for Campbelltown and Macarthur customers to the Sydney CBD via the T2 Airport Line which equals.
“Peak hour trains out of Campbelltown are struggling with demand. So, we’re simplifying the network to add the 20 extra weekly peak hour services to boost capacity,” Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.
The new direct link will allow trains to run from Leppington to Parramatta and Blacktown. Minister for Transport and Infrastructure Andrew Constance said customer growth is forecast to rise 21 per cent across the network in the coming five years.
This is the next step in the ‘More Trains, More Services’ programme – a capital investment of over USD 1.5 billion to provide an urgent uplift in customer service on Sydney’s rail network.
‘More Trains, More Services’ will be a staged program of works on the rail system to complement additional rail capacity being introduced on the network, particularly the Sydney Metro Northwest line which is due to open in 2019.
