Transport for NSW will start implementing some bus stop changes on Woniora Road and King Georges Road in South Hurstville on 17 August 2020. The changes are to improve bus reliability and on-time running along the Miranda to Hurstville via Sylvania bus corridor. The changes will include bus stop removals and upgrades to comply with accessibility standards as per the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
JUN 2020Engagement Report released
Transport for NSW would like to thank everyone who gave us feedback on the bus stop changes on Woniora Road and King Georges Road in South Hurstville during November and December 2019.More information
We have considered all your feedback carefully and have decided to proceed with the original proposal with some amendments.
For further details, please view the consultation report for Suburban bus route 11 - Miranda to Hurstville via Sylvania (PDF, 1.6Mb).
Transport for NSW has identified some ways to improve the reliability of buses along the Miranda to Bankstown via South Hurstville bus corridor.
Transport for NSW, in consultation with bus operators and local councils will be making changes to some bus stops on Woniora Road and King Georges Road in South Hurstville. The changes are to bus stops mainly serviced by bus routes 970 and 971.
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.
The proposed bus stop changes aim to strike a balance between maintaining a reasonable walking distance to bus stops (i.e. within a 400 metre radius or an average five minute walk) and an efficient bus network.
Making adjustments to the number of bus stops along a bus corridor also helps improve bus travel times. Each bus stop location is considered with a focus on the safety of bus customers and motorists.
Key outcomes of the bus stop changes include:
- making travel times more reliable for bus customers
- improving customer and motorist safety for bus operations
- contributing to the NSW Government’s target of 95 per cent on time running bus services.
