Community invited to have a say on bus stop changes along The Hornsby to Blacktown corridor
28 August 2017
The community is invited to have a say on changes to bus stops and on-street parking along the corridor between Hornsby and Blacktown which will aim to improve bus service reliability.
A Roads and Maritime Services spokesperson said a review of environmental factors for the proposed changes will be on display until Monday 25 September to give the community a chance to provide feedback.
“The NSW Government is making changes to a number of bus stops on some of Sydney’s busiest routes as part of the Bus Priority Infrastructure Program,” the spokesperson said.
“The community is encouraged to provide feedback on proposed changes to some bus stops along the corridor which is serviced primarily by routes M60, T70 and T71.
“The proposed improvements aim to provide a more reliable bus network which is more efficient and convenient for customers.”
“The NSW Government is always looking at ways to improve bus journey times and by combining or removing bus stops along some routes, the way customers move around will be improved.”
The spokesperson said bus stops near schools, aged care facilities and shopping centres have been carefully considered to ensure access to these vital services is maintained.
“As part of the proposed changes, some on street parking spaces will be removed to make it easier for buses to move in and out of stops,” the spokesperson said.
Proposed changes will be made to some bus stops along the bus corridor between Hornsby and Blacktown via Castle Hill including:
- Norwest Boulevard at Baulkham Hills
- Victoria Avenue, Carrington Road, McMullen Avenue and Castle Hill Road at Castle Hill
- Macquarie, County and Francis Greenway drives at Cherrybrook
- Pennant Hills Road at Pennant Hills, Thornleigh and Normanhurst
- Pacific Highway at Hornsby.
Feedback on the document is invited by Monday 25 September and will be considered when finalising the proposal.
The spokesperson said the community will be kept informed as the proposal progresses.
