Mosman and Spit Junction

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 construction of a new left hand turn lane from Spit Road (city bound) into Awaba Street, Mosman
  • 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.

  • 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 11 months 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

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
