I see that the last response to the question about timed bus lanes in Collaroy was about a month ago. Given the B-Line is to commence operations on 26 Nov, has any consultation commenced in relation to how the project will proceed in the area? Additionally, how will this consultation take place? Will residents be contacted individually? Will notice of the consultation be in the Manly Daily only? Thanks, Jacqui
Thanks for reaching out to the B-Line Project Team.
There has been no formal decision to alter bus lanes in Collaroy with the commencement of B-Line services on the 26th of November.
Consultation on the B-Line project is carried out in a variety of ways to reach as many people as possible, including:
Letter box dropped notifications
Community consultation sessions
Website publications and direct contact avenues
This consultation will continue throughout the construction process at Collaroy.
Please get in touch again if we can answer any more questions.
Hi, Has there been a decision made on Bus Lane/clearway restrictions to be maintained as is, ie. 6-10am southbound; 3-7pm northbound? Between Fielding and Wetherill street 100's of cars park after 7pm each night as there is no parking left in residents own streets. Fielding, Jenkins, Frazer and Ramsay streets are the worst affected. Has there been an assessment on the impact of removing this parking? Where would these cars park considering you already cannot park in the streets on weekends or after 5pm weekdays? I have not been able to find much on the monthly newsletters to confirm what changes will be made. Thank you
Thanks for getting in touch.
There has been no formal decision at this stage to pursue the introduction of clearways, or 24 hour bus lanes, with the commencement of the B-Line Bus Service.
The Corollary community will be consulted if any changes to current clearway restrictions were to be proposed.
I live near the Pittwater Road opposite Hadleigh Avenue bus stop. I depend on this bus route to get to work everyday (in the city). Since you've decided to remove my bus does this mean I need to walk kilometers into Collaroy or drive now?
Thanks for reaching out.
Can you please confirm which bus you're referring to?
At Collaroy, a B-Line stop will be provided on both sides of Pittwater Road.
If you jump on to our service plan page here, you can view details regarding modified and replacement services.
I hope some of this information might help,
I have two points to make.
Firstly, Eastbank Avenue - is just that - its not "Eastbank Street" as quoted in this picture. Please fix this blaring error, which is an indication that no one has actually been there.
Secondly, why is Eastbank Avenue getting further restrictions in access to Pittwater road (peak hour ban on turning right), while all the other nearby streets, including homestead, bissendon etc... are all getting special turning lanes. This is an outrage,
Eastbank Avenue is a very busy street, there are a number of large developments proposed (for example the Salvation Army next door to number 19) - and there are lots of residents.
Please rectify these oversights and errors ASAP
Thanks for your enquiry.
A new map has been uploaded and updated at the Collaroy section in our website.
With regards your question, reasons for further restrictions are;
1. There is not enough room to provide a separate right turn bay at Eastbank avenue. According to the consultation report, traffic counts completed in
planning indicated that seven vehicles make this movement
each day. As a result, the impact of limiting this movement during peak periods
is not considered significant due insufficient vehicles flow.
2. There is not enough space to build a turning bay at Eastbank Avenue that
allows vehicles to safely decelerate in this area. As a result, a turning bay
would present a safety risk, increasing the likelihood of rear end accidents.
3. Allow turning vehicles into Eastbank avenue during peak hours will impact on travel times of inbound vehicles.
Are the Bus Lane/clearway restrictions to be maintained as is, ie. 6-10am southbound; 3-7pm northbound?
The B-Line project team is currently exploring other initiatives to improve the B-Line bus journey times. One of these options is to extend clearways and bus lanes in various sections of the B-Line corridor. If any of these options are investigated local residents and business will be consulted, have their say and be invited to review the environmental impacts assessment report before any determination is made.
Will the weekend parking restriction south of Anzac Ave to Long Reef car park get rid of the 70 For Sale Cars parked for 3 days along this stretch of road. Without this the weekend B-line services will have problem traveling from Collaroy to Dee Why
Will other existing stops along Pittwater Road Collaroy still be used eg. near Ramsay St., Frazer St. etc
There will be one B-Line city-bound stop and one B-Line Mona Vale-bound stop.
The proposed location of the city-bound stop is in front of
The Beach Club Collaroy. The proposed location of the Mona Vale-bound stop is
just north of Collaroy Street.
The B-Line team will continue to consult with
the community in 2017 about any additional changes to the existing bus stops.
How can existing car parking at Collaroy be adequate for the B Line service when the existing car park is
ALWAYS full by 9 am each weekday morning?
You are asking commuters to give up their cars to use the new B Line service and not have enough car spaces for those extra commuters.
This needs more thought put into it before implementation.
Thanks for your question.
Opal and census data showed that demand for demand for commuter car parking around Collaroy is met by existing parking facilities. Commuters looking to park and ride will also be serviced by additional commuter car parks as part of the B-Line Program at Narrabeen, Dee Why and Brookvale.
