Have your say on improving bus services in Hornsby
11 May 2020
Members of the community are encouraged to have their say on a proposed bus lane extension and bus stop relocation on the Pacific Highway at Hornsby.
A Transport for NSW spokesperson said the proposed improvements between Edgeworth David Avenue and Leonard Street would see the southbound bus-only lane extended by 120 metres and the bus stop upgraded and moved 35 metres to improve safety and efficiency.
“This section of the highway is a key route for commuters, students and shoppers alike and is close to Westfields shopping centre and Hornsby Girls High School,” the spokesperson said
“Eight bus routes use this section of highway and during peak periods a bus travels along it every five minutes, which can cause congestion and delays for all road users.
“The improvements will help make bus services more efficient by providing an extended bus-only lane and creating enough space for two buses at the bus stop south of the Pacific Highway and Edgeworth David Avenue intersection.
“This will stop buses queuing across the intersection and in traffic lanes, improving traffic flow and safety for all road users.
“As part of the proposal, 14 parking spaces will need to be removed from the Pacific Highway to make space for the extended bus lane.
“There is alternative parking on Government Road, Leonard Street, Hornsby Street and James Street and on the northbound side of the Pacific Highway within 100 metres walking distance.”
This project is being delivered as part of the NSW Government Bus Priority Infrastructure Program, designed to improve the reliability and efficiency of bus services while easing congestion for all road users.
