Changes to bus stops along the Botany to Gore Hill bus corridor (route M20)

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

Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses along the Botany to Gore Hill bus corridor.

Background

These changes support Future Transport Strategy 2056, which is the NSW Government’s plan to deliver the future transport network. In this plan, a key customer outcome is safety and performance, which seeks to ensure that every customer enjoys safe travel across a high performing and efficient network. It also reflects what our customers tell us about bus services, with travel time and on-time running being some of the most important service features.

Key outcomes

Key outcomes with the bus stop changes include:

  • improving safety for bus operations
  • making travel times more reliable for customers
  • contributing to the NSW Government’s target of 95 per cent on-time running of bus services.

Bus stop changes

As part of this program, Transport for NSW and Roads and Maritime will make changes to bus stops at:

Bourke Street near Potter Street, Waterloo

This stop is serviced by routes M20, 301, 302 and 303.

  • extension of the bus stop TSN 201742 by six metres northeast to provide additional length for buses to pull into the bus stop safely
  • loss of one car parking space.

This stop is serviced by routes M20, M50, 305, 308, 309, 310, 343, 372, 393 and 395.

  • extension of the bus stop TSN 201082 by 20 metres to cater for an additional bus
  • loss of three parking spaces
  • removal of two small trees to improve line of sight and allow ease of access to buses.

O’Dea Avenue near Bourke Street, Waterloo

This stop is serviced by routes M20, 301, 302 and 303.
