Newport update

A proposal to provide B-Line services to Newport was announced last year to provide turn up and go bus services to customers north of Mona Vale.

After looking at a number of options to turn buses around, Transport for NSW presented a draft concept to construct a roundabout at the intersection of Neptune and Barrenjoey Roads in October 2017.

The proposal also included two B-Line bus stops at the existing northbound and southbound stops on Barrenjoey Road at Newport shops, and a southbound B-Line stop on Barrenjoey Road near Newport Beach at the existing bus stop site.

Early community consultation was undertaken with customers, local residents and community groups in October 2017.

The feedback received from the community and stakeholders, along with additional complexities identified during the site investigations undertaken earlier this year, has resulted in Transport for NSW reviewing how we can best service customers north of Mona Vale.

An outcome of this review is that B-Line services are no longer proposed to extend to Newport and the construction of a roundabout at the corner of Neptune and Barrenjoey Roads will not proceed.

We will continue to investigate opportunities to improve existing bus services north of Mona Vale to align with demand and customer travel patterns between the Northern Beaches, Lower North Shore and the Sydney CBD. Customers will be kept informed prior to any changes later this year.

Work will also continue along the corridor from Mona Vale to the Sydney CBD to manage traffic congestion, reliability of buses and support the new B-Line bus services.
