Improving bus services in Camperdown, Stanmore, Dulwich Hill and Marrickville - Bus Priority Infrastructure Program

Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses in Inner West Council.

Updates and announcements

Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services asked the community for feedback between February and April 2017 on a proposal to make changes to some bus stops in Sydney’s southern suburbs along bus routes 412, 422, 423 and 428. We received feedback from 215 people and organisations. We would like to thank everyone for their comments. The feedback included comments about access to bus services, additional walking distances and project justification. We summarised the feedback with our responses in a Submissions Report.

Project background

These changes are part of Sydney's Bus Future, the NSW Government’s plan to redesign Sydney’s bus network to meet customer needs now and into the future. In this plan, our customers tell us that travel time and on-time running are some of the most important service features. For more information view Sydney’s Bus Future, Transport for NSW. These changes have been developed by Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime, in consultation with Sydney Buses. Local councils were consulted as part of the early planning work. Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services will be implementing changes to some bus stops along routes 412, 423, 426 and 428 on:

  • Salisbury Road, Camperdown and Stanmore
  • Addison Road, Marrickville
  • Livingstone Road, Marrickville
  • Marrickville Road, Marrickville
  • Trafalgar Street, Petersham
  • Douglas Street, Stanmore
  • Beauchamp Street, Marrickville
  • Victoria Road, Marrickville
  • Illawarra Road, Marrickville
  • Wardell Road, Dulwich Hill
  • New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill.

There are also proposed changes to some on-street parking. For more information, please download the project update.

The NSW Government has fully funded the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program. The program aims to improve the reliability of bus services on Sydney’s main bus corridors.

The proposed changes are part of ‘Sydney’s Bus Future’, the NSW Government’s plan to redesign Sydney’s bus network to meet customer needs now and into the future. For more information please visit Sydney's Bus Future.

These changes have been developed by Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime, in consultation with Sydney Buses. Local councils were consulted as part of the early planning work.

  • Making travel times more reliable for customers.
