Neutral Bay and Cremorne

Construction update September 2017 - Cremorne

Works between Holt Avenue and Spofforth Street, Cremorne are currently on hold pending ongoing design refinements. Investigation works will continue to take place. The B-Line project team will keep the community informed with progress at this location in the coming weeks.

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:

  • the permanent relocation of the M30 bus layover from Spit Road to Military Road east
  • the construction of an indented bus bay on Military Road (citybound) between Murdoch Street and Hampden Avenue
  • all proposed turn restrictions at the intersection of Military Road/Ben Boyd Road
  • the proposed section of tidal flow at Ben Boyd Road, Neutral Bay.

The following scope item has been revised following community feedback:

  • the distance of relocation of outbound and citybound local bus stops from their existing location at Cremorne has been reduced.

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

  • Hi, we live near Merlin St, would de b-line buses stop at the Watson St bus stop or are we having to walk all the way to Neutral Bay Junction to use the service. Also is there any truth about the realignment of Military Rd island traffic and the provision of a new proper bus interchage for Neutral Bay?

    Analia asked 15 days ago

    Dear Analia,

    Thanks for your query.

    Yes the B-Line stops in Neutral Bay will be at the junction (at the stops near Wycombe Rd). These stops would have improved facilities such as real-time passenger information displays, however it is not a whole new interchange.

    Regarding realignment of traffic, to improve traffic flow there are planned changes for Military Rd in order to separate general traffic from buses which have stopped to drop off and pick up passengers. This includes extension of tidal flow lanes (where a lane direction is reversed during peak periods to provide 3 uninterrupted citybound lanes through Military Rd during AM peak).

  • What date are at double Decker b line buses and routes plan to commence service ?

    andy miller asked about 2 months ago

    Hi Andy, 

    The B-Line will be operational by late 2017. 

    As we're still in the construction phase, a specific date hasn't yet been released as different elements can impact an appointed day. 

    Thanks for your question,

    Stevi

  • What does tidal flow area actually mean in these maps?

    Lisa4626 asked 6 months ago

    Hi Lisa,

    Tidal flow is a ‘reversible’ lane in which traffic may travel in either direction depending on the time of day or traffic conditions. Through the usage of movable medians, candy bar bollards, and/or in-pavement lights, the lane configuration will be changed to allow three uninterrupted lanes city-bound past existing bus stops and two lanes outbound during AM peak. Tidal flow is designed to improve traffic flow during peak periods by allowing T3 transit lane users and limited-stop busses to pass bus stops without being held up behind stopped busses.

    Thanks, 

    Stevi

  • Hi guys, Do you have further information about the tree removal in St Leonards park for the alternate route?

    Thomas asked 2 months ago

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for your question.

    No trees will be removed in St Leonards Park.

  • Is it still intended to not allow turning left from Cabramatta Rd into Military Rd? Aside from the congestion it will cause with vehicles trying to get in and out, it's going to push all of the traffic down to the next intersection, potentially doubling the traffic into an intersection that is essentially coming from 5 directions. There's going to be accidents.

    zaac82 asked 2 months ago

    Hi Zaac

    Thanks for your feedback. The project team is currently looking into a restricted left turn during certain times of the day.

  • I live in Cremorne. You are removing the bus stop - how do I get to work? Don't tell me I need to go to Neutral Bay as I will never get on a bus as the queues are so long. You are only thinking of the Northern Beaches residents going to the city not the people living in lower north shore!

    Mary-ann asked 4 months ago

    Hi Mary-Ann

    Thanks for your question.

    We are proposing to relocate, not remove, the bus stops near Cremorne Town Centre. The bus stops were initially going to be moved approximately 130 metres west of their current locations but after community consultation, we have reduced the distance of the relocation. The updated proposal is for the outbound bus stop to be moved 105 metres west (towards Neutral Bay) from its current position. A bus shelter will be provided in this new location to provide protection from inclement weather. The city bound bus stop at Cremorne will be moved 95 metres west (towards Neutral Bay) from its current position.
