The Airport, Inner West and South railway line is the new collective name for the Airport and East hills line, Inner west line and the South line. On maps and platforms it also referred to by the code .
Airport and East Hills LineEdit
The Airport & East Hills Railway Line, in Sydney, Australia, connects the Sydney Central Business District with Glenfield and then Campbelltown via Sydney Airport and East Hills. Part of Sydney's Sydney Trains network, the line is made up of two separate lines, the East Hills Line, originally constructed in 1931, and the Airport Line (or Airport Link) (opened in 2000), as well as a portion of the Main South Line between Glenfield and Campbelltown; although since the opening of the Airport Line, the two lines have operated essentially as a single line. Operationally, however, the lines are quite different, with the Airport Line stations being operated by a private company, the Airport Link Company, as part of a public private partnership (PPP). This gives them the right to charge a surcharge on top of the normal fare. The first section of the line, connecting Tempe and East Hills, opened in 1931. The line was connected to the main south line at Glenfield, via Holsworthy, in 1987. The line joined with the new Airport Link in 2000.
East Hills LineEdit
- Main article: East Hills Railway Line
The East Hills line runs along the alignment of the Illawarra line between the City Circle and Tempe Railway Station – this route is used during peak hour by express services. From Wolli Creek, the line heads west towards East Hills, where the alignment is within 2 km of the since-constructed M5 South Western Motorway between Wolli Creek and East Hills. It then turns south-west through the new suburbs of Voyager Point and Wattle Grove to meet the main south line at Glenfield Junction, where services proceed to Campbelltown and Macarthur. The line is four tracks between Wolli Creek junction and just past Kingsgrove Station, then two tracks to Glenfield junction, Campbelltown and Macarthur, except for several stations with three platforms at Revesby, East Hills, Glenfield, Campbelltown and Macarthur. The line parallels the Southern Sydney Freight Line between Macarthur and Ingleburn stations.
The New South Wales Public Works Committee approved of construction of a railway from Tempe to East Hills in August 1924. A ceremony at Padstow Park commemorating the turning of the first sod by the then-Premier of New South Wales Jack Lang was held in September 1927. Construction commenced in April 1928 with the employment of 400 workers. Station names were announced in November 1929. They were largely the same as those used today with the exception of Dumbleton (present-day Beverly Hills) and Herne Bay (present-day Riverwood).
The first section of the East Hills line was opened on 21 September 1931 as an electrified double track line from Wolli Creek Junction (between the present-day Tempe Station and Wolli Creek) to Kingsgrove. The second section, a single-track non-electrified extension to East Hills with a passing loop at Riverwood (Herne Bay) station, was opened on 19 December 1931 by the then-Minister for Local Government James McGirr in a ceremony at East Hills. Services on this section were by CPH railmotor, supplemented by through steam trains from Central in peak hours. The single line between Kingsgrove and East Hills was opened for electric services on 17 December 1939. The event was marred by the suicide in front of a crowd of 1000 people at East Hills station of a man who shot himself through the heart with a pea rifle.
The line was duplicated between Kingsgrove and Riverwood in 1948, with points for terminating trains provided at both stations, and a passing loop at Revesby was opened in 1956. Services generally ran all stations from East Hills via Tempe and Sydenham, to the City Circle. Occasional services terminated at Riverwood, Kingsgrove and Padstow. Most trains stopped at Erskineville and St Peters, now only served by the Bankstown line.
In 1985, the line was duplicated through to East Hills and on 21 December 1987 extended to Glenfield to connect with the Main South Line, allowing through services to and from Campbelltown. A new station was provided at Holsworthy, and East Hills station was rebuilt with the addition of a third platform. When services commenced, there were only limited services from Campbelltown via East Hills during peak hours only; however, in 1988 an all day half hourly service was provided. Local (all stations) services generally ran every 15 minutes from East Hills.
The Airport Link includes a 4 km rock tunnel and a 6 km soft ground tunnel.
For most of its length, the line is in tunnel. The Airport Link runs south from platform 23 at Central station across a viaduct to the tunnel portal beneath Prince Alfred Park near Chalmers Street. The tunnel roughly follows George Street underneath the suburbs of Redfern and Waterloo. At Green Square station, beneath the intersection of Botany Road, Bourke Road and O'Riordan Street, the line continues beneath Bourke Road to Mascot station, a block south of Gardeners Road.
From Mascot, the line roughly follows O'Riordan Street before turning sharply to the west once underneath Kingsford Smith Airport. The line runs westward under the Domestic terminal and the International terminal before continuing north-west underneath the Cooks River to reach the surface at Wolli Creek. At Wolli Creek, the Airport Link joins the East Hills line. The line is two tracks for its entire length.
The two new stations which were built for the airport's International and Domestic Terminals, feature larger lifts and wider ticket barriers to cater for passengers with baggage. Three new suburban stations were built – one each for the residential development areas of Mascot and Green Square, and an interchange station with the Illawarra Line at Wolli Creek.
Faced with the significant costs of building Olympic venues, the Fahey Liberal government sought to reduce the costs of the new railway by entering into a public private partnership to build the line. Under the deal, a private company, Airport Link, would cover the costs of building four of the stations. In return they would operate those stations for 30 years and have the right to impose a surcharge on fares for their use. The company's involvement was predicated on passenger estimates and train reliability guarantees that later proved to be optimistic. The NSW Government would fund (and own) the railway itself and Wolli Creek station.
Construction on the Airport Rail Link (or the New Southern Railway, as it is officially called) began in 1995 with a view to improving facilities for air travellers ahead of the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney. At the time, the main public transport link between the city and its airport was two express bus services, the route 300 & route 350 "Airport Express" bus.
A Tunnel boring machine was used for the construction. Manufactured by the German firm, Herrenknecht, it arrived in Australia in October, 1996. While the use of a Tunnel boring machine relieved the need for large numbers of workers at increased pressure, a caisson system is formed at the cutting head. Workers entering this space for inspection, maintenance and repair had to be trained. Medical direction was utilized for planning compression and decompression, assessment of fitness to dive, training of workers and lock operators, health monitoring of workers and treatment of related injuries. This project was the first time oxygen decompression tables were used for caisson work in Australia. The incidence of decompression illness was 1 case in every 286 pressurizations (0.35%) and this problem affected 5.9% of the workers.
The line opened on 21 May 2000, three months ahead of the Olympic Games, after the State Government had spent around $700 million on the project and the Airport Link Company over $200 million. In conjunction with the construction of the new line, the section of the East Hills Line between Wolli Creek Junction and Kingsgrove was quadruplified. Once this was opened, the running patterns of the trains on the lines changed. The "flying junctions" interchange near Central Station was altered to give the Airport Line its own platforms (21 & 23) at Central. Local (all stations) trains generally were timetabled to run from East Hills via the airport, peak hour express trains from Campbelltown run along the original route via Sydenham, taking the express tracks between Kingsgrove and Wolli Creek Junction.
From the beginning, a major criticism of the line was that it is not served by dedicated rolling stock, as has occurred elsewhere such as in the Hong Kong MTR's dedicated Airport Express line. Travellers entering the line at Domestic and International must compete for space with commuters from the East Hills line, and find that the trains have no special provision for their luggage.
Despite the cancellation of the rival Airport Express bus service, taxi surcharges and expensive airport parking, the Airport Link consistently failed to meet patronage targets. Less than a year after the line opened, the State Rail Authority stated that "patronage has been lower than expected to date", but they remained optimistic, believing "that as airport users become more familiar with this facility and the ingrained habits of many years gradually alter, patronage will continue to increase," In 2000, the Airport Link Company went into receivership, exposing the government to costs of around $800 million; it was put up for sale in early 2006. State Rail blamed "lower than expected patronage" and stated it was working with the company to increase it.
In October 2005, the Government and the company signed a revised agreement on revenue and patronage, settling the latter's claims against the former. The Government paid $34 million to the company, with another $73 million due as Sydney Trains earns revenue from Airport Line business.
Together with the Cross City Tunnel, the Airport Link served to dampen government and business enthusiasm for further public private partnerships in transport in New South Wales.
The stations were purchased by Westpac. In 2009 the business made a profit of A$5.8 million. In 2010 it increased to A$9.3 million.
In March 2011 it was announced that the NSW Government would cover the cost of the station access fee at Green Square and Mascot stations, meaning that passengers no longer need to pay a surcharge to access these stations. A fee remains in place for Domestic and International stations. Patronage on the link had been growing at 20% per year, but between March and June 2011 patronage increased by 70% as a result of the reduced fares.
Apart from the Airport Line's troubles, the line as a whole also suffered a substantial loss in patronage when the M5 East Tunnel opened in 2001. The tunnel joined the Eastern Distributor and M5 South Western Motorway, shortening road travel times between the city and the south west. The line was estimated to have lost 384,450 commuters over 12 months after the tunnel opened. Since that time, however, the line appears to have gained commuters again, with a reported 3.5% increase in patronage up to early 2006.
Trains on the line generally run every 15 minutes during weekdays, with more services in peak hours. Services are run using C, S, A, and M sets. The line is part of sector 2. 95.6% of all services from the Airport and East Hills line ran on time ranking 6 out of all lines.
Macathur station upgradeEdit
Macarthur station is being upgraded with an extra platform as part of the Rail Clearways Program. This will enable additional trains to terminate there, instead of at Campbelltown. The Southern Sydney Freight Line will enable freight trains to bypass Macarthur station, which will also improve the terminating capacity of the station
Split into two linesEdit
Sydney Trains's Rail Clearways Program includes two construction projects for the East Hills line, to expand its capacity. Firstly, the side turnback with one platform at East Hills will be replaced by a centre turnback with two platforms at Revesby. One of the turnbacks came into broad use in October 2009.
Secondly, the four track section between Wolli Creek and Kingsgrove will be extended to Revesby, and the second turnback will open. These projects will allow all stations services originating from Revesby to be segregated from the limited stop service originating from Campbelltown and Macarthur. At Wolli Creek, Revesby services will use the Airport line while Campbelltown/Macarthur services will run via Sydenham. This will effectively form two separate lines; an all stations line and a Campbelltown Express line.
South West Rail LinkEdit
The South West Rail Link was built by Transport for New South Wales from Glenfield to Leppington, New South Wales, with two new stations at Edmondson Park and Leppington itself, serving the new town centres to be built there. There is also a yard at Rossmore. The line is currently fed by T2 South Line trains. For a period after opening, the line ran as a 30 minute shuttle from Liverpool. In conjunction with the new line, Wolli Creek Station was expected to have two extra platforms constructed to service passengers on the future Campbelltown Express line, but this didn't happen. The project was split into two stages. Stage one includes an upgrade of Glenfield station with a new platform and a flyover at Glenfield North Junction to take East Hills line trains over the Main South line. Stage two is the new line itself, which was completed in 2016.
Inner West LineEdit
The Inner West Line is a railway line located in the Inner West region of Sydney, Australia. It runs on the section of track sometimes known as the Main Suburban railway line.
Main Suburban LineEdit
The Main Suburban railway line is the technical name for the trunk railway line between Redfern railway station and Parramatta railway station in Sydney, Australia, but now generally refers to the section between Redfern and where the Old Main South Line branches off at Granville Junction. This term distinguished this trunk line from the Illawarra Line which branched south from the Illawarra Junction to Wollongong, and later the North Shore tracks which carried trains north over the Harbour Bridge.
This section of railway line is Sydney's oldest, opening in 1855. The line was quadruplicated to Flemington in 1892. The line saw its most dramatic change in the period 1926-1927, when the section from Redfern to Homebush was expanded from four to six tracks by the addition of two tracks initially intended for non-electric express trains. Prior to 1926, all stations on the line had platform faces to all four tracks, and the tracks were labelled as 'fast' and 'slow'. After the completion of works in 1927, only Redfern and Strathfield had platform faces on all six tracks. The four tracks now known as the 'Up and Down Local lines' and the 'Up and Down Suburban Lines' were electrified in 1928. It was not until 1955 that the 'Up and Down Main Lines' were also electrified to coincide with the opening of the Blue Mountains electrification program.
Description of RouteEdit
The route of the Inner West Line consist of three pairs of tracks between Central and Strathfield stations (six tracks in total), designated as Main (the northern-most pair), Suburban (the inner pair) and the Local (the southernmost pair) lines. At Strathfield, the Main North Line branches off, and four tracks continue westwards. At Lidcombe, the Main South line branches off towards Regents Park and on to Cabramatta where the line meets the Old Main South from Granville, continuing south to Liverpool and beyond. What Sydney Trains currently markets as the Inner West Line are services which originate from an anti-clockwise direction around the City Circle, passing through Redfern and along the 'local' pair of tracks to Strathfield, then on through Lidcombe to Regents Park. Here trains alternately operate along the 'Main South' to Liverpool via Cabramatta, or to Bankstown, becoming Bankstown line services.
The Inner West line between Redfern and Granville is the route of the first railway line to be constructed in New South Wales. The first company to start rail transport in New South Wales was the Sydney Railway Company which was incorporated on 10 October 1849 with the aim of building a railway from Sydney to Parramatta. Capital was raised, shares were sold, and a route was surveyed. The first sod was turned by Mrs Keith Stewart (daughter of the Governor) at Cleveland Paddocks (an area between the southern end of the current Sydney station and Cleveland Street) on 20 May 1850.
The original engineer appointed was Francis Webb Sheilds, an Irishman. He persuaded the New South Wales legislature to pass an Act on 27 July 1852 requiring all railways in the colony to be of 5 ft 3 in (1,600 mm) gauge. This was the gauge in use in Ireland and is now referred to as 1600 mm gauge. After Shields resigned due to the difficulties, a Scot named James Wallace was appointed. Wallace persuaded the legislature to repeal the previous act and replace it, on 4 August 1853, with one requiring a gauge of 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in (1,435 mm) - the current standard gauge. (Unfortunately for Australia, the legislation requiring the broad gauge had been noted in the colonies of Victoria and South Australia and some rolling-stock ordered.)
The Sydney Railway Company encountered many troubles: engineers came and went; real estate required became expensive and difficult to acquire; money, supplies and manpower ran short, partly because of a gold rush. Eventually the property of the Sydney Railway Company was transferred to the government of New South Wales on 3 September 1855.
The line opened on 26 September 1855, from Sydney to Parramatta Junction (near Granville Station), with stations at Newtown, Ashfield, Burwood and Homebush. The Sydney terminal station was on the south side of Devonshire Street, just south of the current Central Station. Although the vicinity was sometimes referred to as Redfern, it was not near the current Redfern station.
The line currently runs between Homebush and City Circle, following the completion of the turnback at Homebush, breaking the Bankstown Circle. Services stop all stops between Homebush and the City, running between South Line services on the local tracks between Homebush and Central. At Central, the line continues onto the City Circle as the City Outer track, travelling clockwise via Town Hall to form T2 Airport & East Line and T3 Bankstown Line.
Prior to 1996, the Inner West line was considered part of the Bankstown Line and was coloured brown on promotional material and directional signage. A timetable named Parramatta Line carried details of all services between Parramatta and the City, including Northern, Southern, Western and Bankstown line services. The section between Lidcombe and Cabramatta via Regents Park was considered part of the Macarthur Line (what is now the South Line), and was colour-coded green. From 1996, when the Merrylands to Harris Park Y- Link opened and the timetable was re-written, the Lidcombe to Cabramatta via Regents Park section was colour coded brown and a new timetable labelled Liverpool- City via Regents Park was published. The August 1999 timetable revision saw the term Inner West Line used for the first time, and the line was colour coded purple which it has maintained to the present day.
The South Line (line colour: light blue, originally green) is a railway line in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, and is part of the Sydney Trains suburban network. This line conveys passengers between stations on the City Circle and the south-western suburbs of Sydney, including Fairfield, Liverpool and Campbelltown, travelling via Granville.
Description of RouteEdit
What is marketed by Sydney Trains as the 'South Line', (originally called the Great Southern Line) branches from the Main Western Line at Granville. A flyover carries the 'up' (northbound) line over the 'Y Link' tracks (which carry the Cumberland Line services) between Merrylands and Harris Park. The line proceeds south through Merrylands, Guildford and Yennora stations which all have side platforms. North of Yennora station is a connection to a non-electrified goods siding to a Wool Store. The next station is Fairfield, where a set of trailing points at the north of the station allow southbound trains to terminate on platform 2 and return to the city. The line then continues south through Canley Vale station (2 side platforms) before joining the line from Lidcombe via Regents Park at Cabramatta. This junction is at-grade. This line thus described is known technically as the 'Old Main South' line. It is the original alignment of the Main South Railway Line before a more direct route was constructed between Lidcombe and Cabramatta via Regents Park (what Sydney Trains now markets as part of the Inner West Line). The line continues as a two track electrified line south through Warwick Farm (2 side platforms) station. South of Warwick Farm, a former line to Warwick Farm Racecourse branched off in an eastbound direction. This line is now closed and the tracks lifted, however the platform face remains at the racecourse station site. The line continues south to meet the East Hills line at-grade at Glenfield Junction. Three platforms are provided at Glenfield to allow southbound trains to terminate and return to the city. The line continues south to Campbelltown, where three platforms are also provided. The final station is Macarthur, south of Campbelltown. This is the current limit of electrification and of suburban services. Three platforms are provided here to allow suburban trains to terminate clear of the mainlines which continue south through the Southern Highlands to Albury and ultimately to Melbourne.
Most trains services operate from the City Circle in an anticlockwise direction, their origin is most commonly the Airport and East Hills Line. Services then continue south from Central and along the Main Suburban Railway between Redfern and Strathfield usually utilising the 'local' or southern-most set of the six tracks between these two stations. From Strathfield, South Line trains operate on the southern pair of the four tracks to Granville, services then branch off heading south. Most South Line trains terminate at Leppington, following the opening of the South West Rail Link. Before it opened, most services terminated at Glenfield. This is partially to relieve South Line trains of commuters travelling from the City to stations between Glenfield and Campbelltown who are encouraged to use the more direct Airport and East Hills Line instead. During weekdays, there are at least four services during peak hours and two trains per hour during off-peak hours. On weekends, there are four trains per hour at weekends day times between 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. The South Line is also particularly used by commuters travelling from the south-western suburbs to the regional business districts of Parramatta and Blacktown - especially when the part-time Cumberland Line is not in operation - by changing for the Western Line at Granville. In 2009-2010 the South line ranked 12th out of 16 lines in reliability and only managed to provide 93.7% of services on time.
The South line has had several different names. As mentioned, the section between Granville and Cabramatta is technically the 'Old Main South', and the section south of Cabramatta is technically the 'Main South' (which continues to Albury). Prior to 1991, the line was advertised as the Macarthur Line, and it included the section from Lidcombe to Cabramatta via Regents Park, which is now part of the Inner West Line. From 1992-1996, the South Line was designated the Campbelltown via Liverpool Line. From 1996-1999, the line was known as Macarthur via Granville. The line is sometimes still known colloquially as the Granville Line, due to announcements at some stations, particularly between Liverpool and Campbelltown, referring to city-bound trains as going to the "City via Granville". Since 1999, the line has carried its current designation of South Line. The line has previously been coloured green and integrated with the East Hills line on promotional material and in directional signage. Since 2000 the two lines have been separated and the South Line has been coloured pale blue. Despite these cosmetic changes, since 1987 when the Glenfield to East Hills link was completed, the manner in which trains operate on the line has remained essentially unchanged.
