Customers in the Drummoyne electorate will benefit from improved services and connections across the train, bus and ferry network from 26 November when a new timetable is introduced.
Member for Drummoyne, John Sidoti said the NSW Government is improving services to better align with the new train timetable, making it even easier for customers to change between different modes of public transport.
Some of the key improvements in the Drummoyne electorate are:
- doubling frequency between Epping and Central on the T1 Northern Line via Strathfield on weekendswith an extra two services every hour, or a train every 15 minutes
- doubling trains on the T1 Northern Line late at night between Epping and Sydney CBD via Strathfield providing customers with a train every 15 minutes on average instead of every 30 minutes today.
- More than 140 additional weekly services across the Sydney Ferries network, including 58 new weekly ferry services along the Parramatta River with 57 additional services on the new stand-alone F8 Cockatoo Island route between Cockatoo Island and Circular Quay, and one additional Sunday service on the F3 Parramatta River route between Sydney Olympic Park and Circular Quay.
“An information campaign has kicked off to help prepare customers gear up for the improvements which will be implemented on Sunday 26 November,” Mr Sidoti said.
“I encourage customers from the Drummoyne electorate to visit transportnsw.info to start planning their journey’s using a new interactive mapping tool, which will help them see how their trips might have changed.
“More than 27,000 extra weekly public transport services have now been introduced by the NSW Government since March 2011.”
The new train timetable is an important part of the NSW Government’s $1.5 billion More Trains, More Services program, which will boost network capacity with more services, better infrastructure and 24 brand new eight-carriage trains.
Changes to bus, ferry and rail timetables may result in some minor changes to existing timetables to provide better connections to other services. Customers should plan their journey ahead by visiting www.transportnsw.info, using the trip planning apps on their mobile devices or phoning the Transport Info Line on 131 500.
