Mona Vale


At Mona Vale, the B-Line program includes a new northbound and southbound bus stop and the conversion of 74 existing parking spaces in the Beeby Reserve car park adjacent to Barrenjoey Road to unrestricted commuter car parking spaces.

In order to obtain planning approval for this proposal, a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) has been prepared and was on public display in November 2016.

TfNSW provided planning approval in February 2017. The Determination Report is available for download. Further information about upcoming works will be made available in the near future.


Changes to Waratah St bus stop

As part of the B-Line program, the existing bus stop at Waratah Street is being relocated to allow for a new indented bus bay at Village Park. This will improve traffic flow along this section of Barrenjoey Road by separating general traffic from buses that have stopped to drop off and pick up passengers.

The approval to co-locate the Mona Vale B-Line stop with the local bus stops north of Park Street / Golf Avenue to Village Park will increase the efficiency of bus services and facilitate easy transfer between local services and B-Line services for customers.

Once the new stop is operational, buses to Church Point will now stop in Pittwater Road, near Bungan Lane.

  • I read with interest the questions on my fellow commuters from the Pittwater end of the peninsula, however many still remain unanswered. For example: will the E86 Express bus to/from the CBD still continue to run? Will other Express buses like the E87, E88 & E89 still continue to run to/from the CBD? All the replies received the quote, "...our planning team is continuing to review services north of Mona Vale as part of the new Northern Beaches Bus Service Plan, which will complement the B-Line. More information about the new plan is expected to become available in the next few months, weeks, days...", but still no firm responses or answers received. Please provide a firm date this review will be finalised? The bus commuters of the Northern Beaches all know that the ONLY WAY to improve bus travel times to/from the CBD, is to implement PERMANENT bus lines from The Spit Bridge through to the Warringah Fwy.....and not just by having more buses on the roads. Has this option been looked at all? I look forward to answers to all of my question above. Thanks

    Hi TGriffiths5

    Thanks for your comments. The new service plan has been released recently late May 2017. For further information you can visit our website http://yoursay.b-line.transport.nsw.gov.au/northern-beaches-bus-service-plan . Route E86 has been discontinued and replaced by route 156 with modifications on routes McCarrs Creek to Mona Vale. This route will have increased frequency across the day (7 days) and additional trips during weekday peak periods.

    Thanks

  • I'd like to know who is responsible fo furutrer landscaping between the BLine bush stop and Village Park Mona Vale. Also, when landscaping plans will be available for public comment. It is important that trees and shrubs should be local native species.

    marita macrae asked 6 months ago

    Hi Marita

    Transport for NSW is responsible for the landscaping in Village Park around the new bus line indent.  Following consultation with local community groups and Council, we plan to replace removed trees with semi-mature Swamp Mahogany’s. 

    In line with our planning approval  we will restore any areas that are impacted by construction with appropriate landscape treatments, use alternative measures other than berms, such as low walls, to limit encroachments on Village Park if practicable; and where landscaped berms and associated trees along Barrenjoey Road are removed, re-establish a continuous  low-level visual barrier between the road and Village Park while maintaining access points.

    Thanks

  • How will the E86 service from Church Point be effected ? Will I have to transfer to the B-Line service at Mona Vale in order to get to Wynyard ?

    MSilk asked about 1 year ago

    Hi MSilk

    Our planning team is continuing to review services north of Mona Vale as part of the new Northern Beaches Bus Service Plan, which will complement the B-Line. More information about the new plan is expected to become available in the next few weeks.

    Thanks

  • Can you please advise proposed changes to the E86 service from Church Point to Wynyard with the introduction of the B Line service.

    WPCA Secretary asked 12 months ago

    Hi WPCA

    More information about the new plan is expected to become available in the coming weeks when the new Northern Beaches Bus Service Plan is released.

    Thanks,

  • Why are you obsessed with buses every ten minutes out of peak hour? The current timetable from Palm Beach works well and out of peak hour buses are rarely full until Dee Why where you should be focussing your attention. I object to any proposals to take over any part of the Mona Vale Village Green for the B LIne. I object to the proposal that as I live north of Mona Vale, I will be required to take a bus or drive to Mona Vale to get a bus into the city. I am angry that you have terminated the buses at Wynyard so travel to town hall and beyond requires yet another change of form of transport. It would appear that the plans have been developed by people with perhaps technical knowledge but no familiarity with the northern beaches area.

    Sue asked 12 months ago

    Hi Sue

    Your comments are noted. Direct services between areas north of Mona Vale and the CBD are currently being considered as part of the new service plan, which is expected to be released in the coming weeks. Further information will be available on the website once the plan is finalised.

  • In answer to my previous question regarding the removal of the trees in Mona Vale Park (which included removing casuarinas, indigenous to this area) you advised me that they are being replaced with Norfolk Island Pines, which of course, are native to Norfolk Island. I would like to know why you propose to use non indigenous trees here, when there are many which are native to this area. The swamp mahogany is native to this area.

    Hi Elaine

    In consultation with local community groups and Council, we plan to replace removed trees with semi-mature Swamp Mahogany’s. We will complete the replanting after the mound has been replaced.

  • We still await details of bus services north of Mona Vale-promised for March 2017. In particular , I am interested in services direct to the CBD at peak times that do not involve either driving to MONA Vale or catching a shuttle- I.e. preservation of the status quo (L90 and express services)

    Hi Felicity

    More information about bus services north of Mona Vale is expected in the next month. Direct services between the CBD and areas north of Mona Vale are being considered as part of the new service plan.

  • What is the local transport plan to get people to the B-Line without driving? What are the options for active transport? Is there bike parking planned? What changes will occur to local loop public transport in Mona Vale Bayview and Ingleside?

    dalecohen asked almost 2 years ago

    Hi Dale

    A new bus service plan for the whole of the Northern Beaches is currently being developed. The plan aims to ensure the regional network operates effectively for customers across the region, and is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2016. The bus service plan will provide local services which will provide connection with the B-Line service, as well as connections to the CBD and other areas on the Northern Beaches. Active transport is part of the program and the scope of works is currently being determined. Bicycle parking will be provided at or near B-Line stops.
