All suburban services will terminate at Central (or Chatswood in the case of the North Shore Line).
Line A will travel from Glenfield down the current East Hills line through the Airport extension until it reaches Central, where there will be new underground platforms. It will then proceed onto the CC travelling anti-clockwise around the loop before returning to Glenfield. This, as well as increasing capacity on the East Hills line, will free up space on the section of the line between Tempe and Redfern due to all Line A trains travelling via the airport.
Line B will travel from new platforms at Central, and will go clockwise around the CC before returning to Central and terminating.
Line C will travel from new platforms at Central, and will continue up the current North Shore line to Chatswood, where all trains will proceed into the ECRL. After the trains stop at Epping, they will travel on new tracks through Cheltenham, then will proceed into a new tunnel that will travel through West Pennant Hills, and north towards Castle Hill. 2 new stations will be made on this section at a major intersection as well as a shopping centre, as well as a station at the intersection of Castle Hill Road and Highs Road. The line will then proceed up towards Round Corner, stopping at a station at the Rogans Hill shops, before entering a stabling facility at Round Corner. This will be used in addition to the Luna Park stabling facility to store trains on Lines B and C.
Line D will start at Rockdale, using the easternmost tracks (the westernmost tracks will be used for South Coast and Illawarra services), then proceed up the line, stopping at Banksia, Arncliffe, Wolli Creek, Sydenham, St Peters and Erskineville. The line will then proceed down the Eastern Suburbs line to Bondi Junction, before travelling through a new tunnel to Bondi Beach, where trains will terminate.
Line E will be comprise of the cancelled West Metro, CBD Metro and North West metro proposals.
Line F will be the cancelled South West Metro, and the Northern Beaches Metro.
Benifits of this plan are:
Freeing up capacity on existing lines, relieving congestion on lines that will be converted to metro.
Freeing up carriages. Over 40 new 8 car trains will be available if the above CityRail lines are converted to metros.
Other rail projects I have proposed are:
Converting the Botany - Marrickville line to passenger operation. Will provide a new link to the Airport, as well as improving PT in a poorly served area. Trains will be standard CityRail trains, and passengers will change trains to Bankstown services at Marrickville.
Underground trams in CBD - Existing line will go underground just after Convention station, and the existing stations will be replaced underground. Barangaroo Line will start at Central, proceed to Capitol Square, then continue down another underground line to Walsh Bay, through Darling Harbour and Barangaroo. This will increase frequency, as well as improve access to Darling Harbour and Barangaroo. The existing line will also be extended to Dulwich Hill.
