North Manly – Condamine Street – Bus Priority Program
Roads and Maritime Services is planning to extend the northbound bus lane on Condamine Street between Sloane Crescent and Fishbourne Road, North Manly.
Roads and Maritime Services sought community feedback about a proposal to improve the efficiency of northbound buses on Condamine Street at North Manly in the afternoon peak. Community comment was generally supportive. As a result Roads and Maritime is proceeding to build a northbound bus lane on the section of Condamine Street, North Manly, between Sloane Crescent and Fishbourne Road.
Buses driving through this area experience delays and cause congestion at the Kentwell Road intersection. The changes aim to improve the reliability of bus services between Sydney Central Business District and the northern beaches and reduce traffic delays for all vehicles. Please see the project map for details.
The work will be carried out across several months from Sunday 29 September 2013 to March 2014, weather permitting.
The work will involve:
- Widening the eastern side of Condamine Street by about one metre for a length of about 300 metres
- Rebuilding traffic lights and removing the median
- Replacing damaged concrete slabs
- Installing sections of new kerbing and guttering and stormwater drainage
- Moving essential services, such water, gas, telecommunications and electricity
- Line marking, signposting and minor landscaping.
To minimise traffic disruptions, work will mainly be done at night, between Sunday and Thursday, from 8pm to 5am. If required, day work will be carried out from Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm and on Saturdays from 7am to 1pm.
Traffic conditions will change on Condamine Street between Sloane Crescent and Fishbourne Road during work with minor delays expected for motorists. Partial lane closures will be in place to create a safe working area for Roads and Maritime staff and to ensure road user safety. Motorists are asked to follow the signs, reduced speed limits and the direction of traffic controllers.
There will be noise associated with this work. Every effort will be made to minimise the impact on residents. Roads and Maritime apologises for any inconvenience this night work may cause and appreciates the patience of residents and motorists while we carry out this essential work.
