Triple bus bay for The Hills commuters

The Hills commuters are getting a $1 million triple bus bay upgrade on Old Northern Road.

Work on the 85-metre bus bay, near the intersection of Ackling Street, Baulkham Hills, will begin on Sunday.

Baulkham Hills MP David Elliott said the specially-built triple bus bay would reduce congestion and improve safety.

“Motorists are advised a section of road where work is being carried out will be closed to traffic, to ensure safety,’’ Mr Elliott said.

“Work will include excavation, replacing concrete and installing new kerb, gutters and footpaths.

“Every effort will be made to minimise the impact of noise during the work.’’

Work will be carried out from 8pm to 5am on weeknights, from 7am to 6pm on weekdays, and between 7am and 1pm on Saturdays until mid July, weather permitting.

Two night shifts of maintenance will be carried to resurface Old Northern Road, near Hill Street at Baulkham Hills, on weeknights from Tuesday, February 11, between 8pm and 5am to reduce future maintenance costs.

The project has funding from the NSW government, as part of its bus priority program.
