Community invited to have a say on bus stop changes along the Parramatta to Hurstville Corridor
31 October 2017
The community is invited to have a say on changes to bus stops and on-street parking along the corridor between Parramatta and Hurstville which aim to improve bus service reliability.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said a review of environmental factors for the proposed changes is on display until Friday 10 November to give the community a chance to provide feedback.
“The NSW Government is making changes to a number of bus stops on some of Sydney’s busiest routes as part of the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program,” the spokesperson said.
The community is encouraged to provide feedback on proposed changes to some bus stops along the Parramatta to Hurstville corridor which is serviced primarily by route M91.
“The proposed improvements aim to provide a more reliable bus network which is more efficient and convenient for customers.
“The NSW Government is always looking at ways to improve bus journey times and by combining or removing bus stops along some routes, the way customers move around will be improved.”
The spokesperson said bus stops near schools, aged care facilities and shopping centres have been carefully considered to ensure access to these vital services is maintained.
“As part of the proposed changes, some on street parking spaces will be removed to make it easier for buses to move in and out of stops,” the spokesperson said.
Proposed changes will be made to some bus stops along the bus corridor between Parramatta and Hurstville via Padstow, Bankstown and Chester Hill including:
- Church Street at Parramatta
- Halsall and Blaxcell streets at Granville
- Blaxcell Street at South Granville
- Campbell Hill Road at Guildford and Chester Hill
- Proctor Parade and Hector Street at Chester Hill
- Hector Street at Sefton and Bass Hill
- Buist and Brodie streets and McMahon and Church roads at Yagoona
- Faraday, Alma and Chamberlain roads at Padstow
- Henry Lawson Drive at Peakhurst
- Forest Road at Peakhurst and Hurstville
- George, Cambridge and Clarence streets at Penshurst.
Feedback on the document is invited by Friday 10 November and will be considered when finalising the proposal.
The spokesperson said the community will be kept informed as the proposal progresses.
