Re: WS Airport Metro

I have a feeling that the route from Campbelltown will involve a trip down The Northern road. Will it go via Harrington Park or will the route via Oran Park and Gregory Hills before entering The Northern road

That is what allows for improvements to services, reduces costs from dead running and allows for more innovative delivery. STA post-optimisation is the gold standard on a Sydney level of h...

Re: New bus contracts to drive improved services (as from 2020)

The original plan was to consolidate the 15 regions into 8, but was later binned. While there may be some synergy savings generated by operating two adjoining regions, they will be on different contractual terms and as demonstrated with region 6, TfNSW appear to be against the idea of having routes...

Extend the metro to Liverpool, that'll take care of the Liverpool link. The rest can either interchange at Bankstown or go via Lidcombe.
How would you implement the Bankstown to Liverpool metro extension without interfering with every station between Bankstown and Cabramatta
