Improving bus services in Vaucluse, Dover Heights, North Bondi and Bondi Beach

Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses in Sydney’s eastern suburbs

Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services asked the community for feedback between March and May 2016 on a proposal to make changes to some bus stops in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

We would like to thank everyone for their comments. We received feedback from 224 people and organisations. The feedback included comments around access to bus services, additional walking distances and project justification. All feedback was considered while finalising the proposal. The proposal has been modified in response to community and stakeholder comments, including further input from the State Transit Authority.

We summarised the feedback and our responses in a Community Consultation Report which can be viewed at consultation report.

We will be removing the bus stop at the following locations:

  • Bondi Road near Sandridge Street, Bondi Beach (Seasonal: during Summer months only)
  • Campbell Parade near Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach (inbound stop)
  • Campbell Parade near Queen Elizabeth Drive, Bondi Beach (outbound stop)
  • Wairoa Avenue near Murriverie Road, North Bondi (inbound stop)
  • Wairoa Avenue near Murriverie Road, North Bondi (outbound stop)
  • Military Road near Liverpool Street, Dover Heights (inbound stop)
  • Military Road near Liverpool Street, Dover Heights (outbound stop)
  • Military Road near Eastern Avenue, Dover Heights
  • Lancaster Road near Peel Street, Dover Heights
  • Military Road near Kimberley Street, Vaucluse (inbound stop)
  • Military Road near Kimberley Street, Vaucluse (outbound stop)

We are modifying the proposal by extending bus stops in the following locations:

  • Campbell Parade near Ramsgate Avenue, Bondi Beach (inbound stop)
  • Campbell Parade near Ramsgate Avenue, Bondi Beach (outbound stop)
  • Wairoa Avenue near O’Donnell Street, North Bondi
  • Murriverie Road opposite Frederick Street, North Bondi
  • Murriverie Road near Knowles Avenue, North Bondi
  • Murriverie Road near Mitchell Street, North Bondi

We are modifying the proposal by creating new bus stops in the following locations:

  • Portland Street near Lancaster Road, Dover Heights
  • Military Road near Oceanview Avenue, Dover Heights

We are no longer proposing a new stop on Mitchell Street, North Bondi.

We will be retaining bus stops on:

  • Bondi Road near Sandridge Street, Bondi Beach (Seasonal: during Summer months only)
  • Blair Street near Wairoa Avenue, Bondi Beach (inbound stop)
  • Blair Street near Wairoa Avenue, Bondi Beach (outbound)
  • Murriverie Road near Mitchell Street, North Bondi
  • Mitchell Street near O’Donnell Street, North Bondi (inbound stop)
  • Mitchell Street near O’Donnell Street, North Bondi (outbound stop)
  • Military Road near Loombah Street, Dover Heights.

Project background

The NSW Government has fully funded the Bus Priority 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.

Key outcomes of the proposal

  • Making travel times more reliable for passengers
  • Contributing to the NSW Government’s target of 95 per cent on-time running of bus services.

What happens next?

We expect to start work at these locations in late 2017 and will notify you before this happens.

We will continue to liaise with the community throughout the project.
