Improving bus on-time running along the Macquarie Park to Hurstville bus corridor (route M41)

Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses in the City of Ryde, City of Canada Bay, Municipality of Burwood, City of Canterbury-Bankstown, Bayside and Georges River Council areas.

Project background

Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime Services asked for feedback on a Review of Environmental Factors for changes to some bus stops along the Macquarie Park to Hurstville bus corridor, mainly serviced by route M41, on:

  • Culloden Road, Marsfield and Macquarie Park
  • Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park
  • Lane Cove Road, Ryde and North Ryde
  • Church Street, Ryde
  • Concord Road, Rhodes and Concord West
  • Wellbank Street, North Strathfield and Concord
  • Majors Road, Concord
  • Crane Street, Concord
  • Burwood Road, Concord and Burwood
  • Queens Road, Hurstville
  • Stoney Creek Road, Kingsgrove
  • New Illawarra Road, Bexley North
  • Bexley Road, Bexley North, Earlwood and Campsie.

There would also be some changes to on-street parking at some locations to support these bus stop changes. For more information, please download the RydeCanada BayBurwood or Bayside, Canterbury-Bankstown and Georges River (PDF,1.81Mb) community updates.

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.

Key outcomes of the proposal

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

Community engagement

We have assessed the environmental impacts of these changes to bus services along the Macquarie Park to Hurstville bus corridor (route M41) in a report of findings called a Review of Environmental Factors (REF). It was on public display from Monday 27 March to Friday 12 May 2017.

Please download the Review of Environmental Factors:

What happens next?

We will consider all feedback and respond in a submissions report, which will be available later this year.

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