WHere are the commuters supposed to park whilst construction is going on?
Some spaces within the Warriewood car park will be taken during construction. By rotating the area we work in, we will maximise the spaces that remain available. At least 50 spaces will remain available at all times during construction.
Untimed parking is available in close proximity to the car park.
Once the car park is completed, around 250 additional spaces will be available for commuters.
In answer to a question from Dale you stated "A bus service plan for the whole Northern Beaches region, which will include the new B-Line service, is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2016". It is now mid-way through quarter and still no report! We who travel from further north than Mona Vale & rely on the express services for faster trips are being totally left out of the loop.
Thanks for your question. The Bus Service Plan is expected to be finalised later this year, and will be released for community feedback and discussion.
The plan aims to improve travel times and simplify the bus network across the region. Express peak services between north of Mona Vale and the CBD are expected to continue.
Will there be access to the B-Line parking station at Warriewood from Collins Street or only Pittwater road?
The existing commuter car park is via a left in, left out turn on to Pittwater Road or via Walsh Street. As part of the B-Line program, a new set of traffic lights allowing right-in, right out turns to/from the car park would also be available.
What is the local area transport plan for Warriewood and Mona Vale to accompany the new B Line so people can get to and from the line without having to drive? Will there be bike parking? What are the changes planned to public transport to move people to and from the line, especially into Warriewood valley?
Facilities for parking bicycles will be provided near B-Line stops. Active transport routes to improve connectivity to B-Lines stops and car parks are also being considered.
A bus service plan for the whole Northern Beaches region, which will include the new B-Line service, is due to be completed in the first quarter of 2016. The new bus service plan aims to ensure the regional network operates effectively for customers across the region and the bus service planners are currently looking at how to best integrate B-Line services with the surrounding bus network.
There will be some changes to the bus network recommended in the new service plan, and these will be communicated to the community during 2016.
