    A central mound within Village Park has been temporarily removed as part of B-Line works in the area, following soil testing which showed materials did not meet the required standard.

    Two trees in the area will also be removed as part of this work. The mound will be restored in the near future with suitable material and soil, while trees across the various mounds will be replanted soon after.

    The area is being modified to make way for the new B-Line bus indent, which will improve traffic flow by allowing buses travelling north to stop safely without impeding through traffic.

    The B-Line program at Mona Vale includes a slight realignment of Village Park to create a new bus indent, which will allow traffic and buses not stopping at Mona Vale to continue uninterrupted by stopping buses, particularly B-Line services.

    To create space for the new bus indent, the existing mounds at Village Park will be shifted slightly to the west, and twenty-one trees will be removed. Details about the specific trees being removed is highlighted in the Mona Vale Review of Environmental Factors.

    Replanted trees will be semi-mature and replanted as soon as possible after the mound has been adjusted.

    Please stay outside the exclusion areas established to allow us to conduct these activities safely. Thank you for your patience while this work is carried out.

    We have been receiving a lot of questions and comments about the B-Line Spit Bridge-Neutral Bay proposal, including concern about the possible removal of local bus stops on Military Road in Cremorne.

    There are no plans to remove any bus stops in Cremorne.

    Under the B-Line proposal, north and south bound bus stops at Cremorne would be relocated around 100 metres west of the present locations. The change is highlighted in the snapshot of the area map below.
