Permanent parking and bus stop changes on Military Road, Cremorne

On Tuesday 23 April, a new lane management (tidal flow) system will become operational on Military Road between Winnie Street and Spofforth Street, Cremorne. This will mean some changes for the community from Sunday 7 April.

 

What is tidal flow?

Tidal flow is a ‘reversible’ lane in which traffic may travel in either direction depending on the time of day or traffic conditions. The Cremorne tidal flow system will utilise moveable medians and in-pavement lighting to separate the traffic travelling in opposite directions in the weekday AM peak.

What does tidal flow do?

The tidal flow system will help ease congestion along Military Road by making more lanes available during AM peak in the peak direction and allowing all other traffic to easily move past buses that are picking up customers.

 

What changes will be made northbound?

From 5am, Sunday 7 April, the following changes will be made northbound between Winnie Street and Macpherson Street to allow for the installation of pedestrian safety fencing and permanent line marking on this section of road.

1. Permanent bus stop relocation - Military Road northbound

The northbound bus stop (Stop ID 209058) on Military Road will permanently relocate 120 metres west of its current position.

2. Permanent parking changes - Military Road northbound

Parking will be permanently removed along Military Road northbound between Winnie Street and Macpherson Street, Cremorne.

3. Temporary off-peak loading zone – weekdays

A temporary loading zone will be available on this section of Military Road from 10.30am - 3pm, weekdays to assist businesses with receiving and unloading deliveries. A permanent loading zone is currently being investigated.

 

What changes will be made citybound?

From 5am, Tuesday 23 April, the following changes will be made citybound between Spofforth Street and Spencer Road to allow for the operation of the tidal flow.

4. Permanent AM peak bus stop relocation – Military Road citybound

A new city bound bus stop (Stop ID 209036) will be operational from Tuesday 23rd April from 6am – 10am, weekdays approximately 100 metres west towards Spencer Road from Cremorne Town Centre. North Sydney, Chatswood and Epping services will operate from this stop in the AM peak.

5. Permanent bus stop location off-peak – Military Road citybound

From 10am weekdays, the citybound bus stop (Stop ID 209059) will return to outside Cremorne Town Centre in order for 10 parking spaces to be made available along Military Road outside peak times.

6. Extended clearways time from 5am – 10.30am

Clearway times will be extended to 5am – 10.30am in this section of Military Road to support the peak hour traffic and operation of tidal flow.

7. Introduction of a AM peak No left turn from Cabramatta Road 6am – 10am

A new No Left Turn restriction from Cabramatta Road onto Military Road will be operational in the AM peak, weekdays.

8. Installation of Stop sign at Spencer Road

Vehicles will be required to stop at Spencer Road before turning left onto Military Road at all times to reinforce safety at this intersection.

Transport for NSW has advised Council that existing T3 lanes were converted to Bus lanes in the AM peak from mid-January 2018. The conversion applied at two sections:

  1. THAT Council endorse a submission to Transport for NSW’s B-Line Team regarding the conversion of the existing AM T3 Lanes to an AM Bus Lane along the lines of commentary provided in this report.
  2. THAT Council also prepare a supplementary submission based on feedback from affected Precincts, including Harrison, Bennett, Willoughby Bay, Neutral and Brightmore.
  3. THAT Council immediately forward to the above Precincts any correspondence that it receives from Transport for NSW regarding the B-Line and continue to publish all correspondence on its website.
