Northbound bus bay extension on Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills

The NSW Government is funding this project to upgrade the bus bay between Torrs Street and Cook Street as part of the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program to make bus services faster and more reliable.

Project background

Roads and Maritime is extending the northbound bus bay on Windsor Road.  The extension of the bus bay will improve bus service reliability by increasing the capacity of the bus bay to three buses. It will also improve travel times for motorists by reducing congestion on Windsor Road and allowing northbound traffic to move past the bus stop. Accessibility to the bus service for the community will be improved along with safety for pedestrians and motorists.

Project features

The project includes:

  • Extending the bus bay on the north bound side of Windsor Road
  • Relocating utilities
  • Removing vegetation near the bus bay
  • Modifying the bus shelter.

The bus bay extension will improve:

  • Bus service reliability and accessibility by increasing the capacity of the bus bay to three buses
  • Traffic flow for northbound motorists caused by buses waiting to enter the bus bay
  • Safety for pedestrians and motorists.

Community engagement

In January and February 2017 Roads and Maritime Services invited feedback on a proposal to extend the northbound bus bay on Windsor Road, Baulkham Hills and two alternative night work schedules.

After considering all responses, we have decided not to change the proposed design. In response to feedback we have adjusted the work plan and reduced the number of night shifts. To minimise disruption to residents, businesses and road users, we will generally not work more than two nights in any week.

Please download the consultation report and project update for more information.

What happens next?

The work may be noisy at times but we will do everything we can to minimise its impact, including completing the noisier tasks by midnight.

During construction the temporary bus stop will be 60 metres north of the existing stop. When the work is finished the bus shelter will be just north of its current location.

We will use a section of Yattenden Oval as a stockpile area during the work. We will also use up to 25 car spaces at the Torrs Street Car Park for a site compound. Please use the new commuter car park beside Windsor Road as an alternative carpark before using the unrestricted on-street car parking along Torrs Street and Livingstone Avenue.
