Mosman and Spit Junction

September 2017 construction update

Work is underway along Spit Road for road improvements between Ourimbah Road to Killarney Street, and at for the new B-Line bus stops and pedestrian plaza at Spit Junction (Clifford Street) For the latest construction notification, please see the 'Documents and resources' tab on the right.

Change to night works program

From 18 September 2017 we will be working for up to five nights in a row (generally Sunday to Thursday) and will then take two nights off (generally Friday and Saturday). Working up to five consecutive nights means that we can complete more work in a shorter timeframe and reduce the overall construction period. Please see the 'Documents and resources' tab for more information.

Tree trimming and removal

Transport for NSW has engaged DM Roads to carry out tree removal and trimming work along Spit Road and Military Road for collision removal, to enable the new double decker B-Line bus to safely travel along the route. Work will carried out from September to October 2017. Please see the 'Documents and Resources' tab on the right for FAQs and further information.


Planning approval

TfNSW has received planning approval for the B-Line program between Spit Bridge and Neutral Bay, which features a series of road improvement work to improve bus travel time and reliability between the Northern Beaches and the Sydney CBD.

A total of 342 submissions were received throughout the public display of the proposal in December 2016 and January 2017.

Key matters raised included concerns about parking, congestion, the relocation of bus stops, turning restrictions, environmental concerns and construction questions.

The approved proposal includes the removal of the following items from the scope of works in Mosman:

  • the construction of a new left hand turn lane from Spit Road (city bound) into Awaba Street
  • the permanent relocation of the M30 bus layover from Spit Road to Military Road east

A Submissions Report has been produced to provide further details about the proposal and responses to feedback.

  • The position of the city bound stop near Cremorne Junction is still controversial. Has it been considered to move it East of the Junction? There is currently an empty block next to the Audi Showroom at about 325 Military Road which could be a suitable site. It is currently an eysesore. If it were to be acquired, there would be plenty of room to construct an indented bus bay. There would also be enough room for 50 car parking spaces. As the block is empty, no demolition would be required, nor any damage to existing gardens.

    Alan Doble asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Alan,

    Thanks for your feedback and suggestion. Unfortunately there is insufficient space at the proposed site to provide the required bus bay length, without significant property acquisition of the neighbouring properties. Moving the bus stop east to this location would also make it too far to service the Cremorne community as the distance from this new location and the next citybound bus stop would be too great.

  • Are there plans/renders available for viewing for the bus bay/interchange at Spit Junction?

    Hi Michael,

    Thanks for your question. We are hoping to have an artist's impressions of the new interchange in the coming weeks and this will be made available on the website

  • What is the proposed increase in passenger capacity city-bound, for buses due to pass through Spit Junction between 7:30 to 8:30am?

    Frosty asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Frosty,

    Thanks for your query.

    Between 7:30-8:30am, the B-Line services will pass through Spit Junction every 5 minutes with a seated capacity of 85. Currently, the buses that pass through are a mix of rigid (short) buses and articulated (long bendy) buses with a seated capacity of 43-46 and 62 respectively.

  • Hi Team, My understanding is that the B-Line initiative is only going to impact Northern Beaches to City services (and vice versa). Can you please confirm that existing city bound services, that originate from Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay (and their associated stops) will NOT be impacted by the B-Line service. Thanks

    vortex asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Vortex,

    The service plan changes can be viewed here:

    http://yoursay.b-line.transport.nsw.gov.au/northern-beaches-bus-service-plan

    B-Line is not intended to impact other existing bus services operating out of Mosman, Cremorne and Neutral Bay. However, there may be some changes to the physical location of bus stops to facilitate some of the road works for the B-Line along Military Rd. Any changes to location of bus stops would be done in consultation with STA to ensure that users are able to access the existing services from the next available bus stop along Military Rd.

  • Why has the safety audit of Bline not been released to the public? Cheers Peter twiney

    Peter T asked 2 months ago

    Hi Peter,

    The design for the road improvements is currently being reviewed to address the feedback we’ve received from the REF and any findings of the audit.

    We’ll notify the community of any changes, including safety measures that will be put in place, at the conclusion of this process.

  • What proportion of Bline buses will make use of the new northern beaches tunnel? Cheers Peter twiney

    Peter T asked 2 months ago

    Hi Peter,

    Decisions on whether the B-Line service will use the tunnel will be made as part of future network planning.Currently the B-Line service is planned to operate on the surface between Newport and Neutral Bay and then into Wynyard via the Harbour Bridge.

  • Why has Bline sought to cut down trees in St .Leonards Park ? Does this mean Bline will go to North Sydney ? Cheers Peter twiney

    Peter T asked 2 months ago

    Hi Peter, 

    Thanks for your question.

    We will not be cutting down trees in St Leonards Park and B-Line is not intended to go to North Sydney.

  • Will Bline remove roadworks/tidal flows/turn bans /etc from military and spit roads once the northern beaches tunnel is open ?Will it then cooperate with local councils to redesign these sections of road ?

    Peter T asked 2 months ago

    Hi Peter,

    The B-Line project isn't associated with the Northern Beaches Tunnel.
    For questions relating to the the tunnels completion and associated works, I'd recommend visiting Roads and Maritime Services website, browsing their projects and locating the relevant submission field. 

    Thanks, 

    Stevi

  • Are the plans for the proposed Transport Interchange available for public viewing? Will it be located on the site of the former cinema at the corner of Spit Road and Clifford Street?

    Graham Brooks asked about 1 year ago

    Hi Graham

    Thanks for your question.

    Transport for NSW is currently progressing our plans for Spit Junction, which includes a bus interchange at the cinema site.

    Further information will be available in coming weeks. Design details will be made available during initial community consultation about the concept later this year.

  • What is the plan to improve the journey for those traveling by car? What is being done to get more cars through Spit Junctiom in peak times for those nit working in the city and have no public transport options. Is a pedestrian bridge planned for Spit Junction to enable a better flow due to no pedestrians crossing at the lights. This would be an easy quick solution and safer too. Thank you and looking forward o all the improvements

    Joford197 asked over 1 year ago

    Hi Joford197

    The B-Line program aims to specifically address the immediate issues facing Northern Beaches bus customers, particularly the frequency and reliability of services.

    Road improvements completed as part of the program at recognised pinch points, including Spit Junction, such as minor lane widening, traffic light phasing, tidal flows and priority movements, may have positive flow-on effects for car users.

    ~ Neil

  • Why is this bus stopping at Spit Junction? There are plethora of buses that already take mosman riders to the City and other destination. The current L90 and other beaches buses already waste a huge amount of time trying to navigate into spit junction for the one person who wants to get off. Most existing services already stop at spit junction - the only stop that is necessary on the city side of north sydney is neutral bay to allow those going to north Sydney or chatswood to change - which is quite a lot of people. Even if the L90s and so on are reduced for this new Bline, the existing all stops 180, 178 etc are adequate for the few people who want to get off at spit junction. lets finally have a service from the northern beaches that gets there in a reasonable time and eliminate the spit junction stop.

    bd asked over 1 year ago

    Hi bd

    The new B-Line service is a high frequency seven days a week, including late night, service to provide connectivity between major commercial, recreational and residential precincts. Spit Junction is a significant precinct along this corridor. Spit Junction, along with Neutral Bay, is a location for interchanging to other services, including services into Mosman.
