Bus interchange upgrade on Canoelands Road, Canoelands

The NSW Government is carrying out this essential work as part of ongoing maintenance of the State road network.

Transport for NSW will upgrade the current temporary bus interchange at Canoelands Road, near Old Northern Road, Canoelands to a permanent interchange.

The new location provides a safer area for buses to turn around and means that we won’t need to remove any trees. The work is in response to community feedback and has been planned with local council, the NSW Rural Fire Service and the relevant bus companies.

This project aims to:

  • construction of a bus turning bay
  • installation of new stormwater drainage
  • installation of safety bollards
  • construction of a new bus shelter

Work schedule

We will be on site for 60 day shifts between Wednesday 2 December 2020 and Wednesday 31 March 2021, weather permitting.

We will not work during the holiday period from Wednesday 23 December to Monday 4 January or on public holidays.

Our work hours will be 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturday.

How will the work affect you?

During construction of the new bus interchange, school children can be picked up and dropped off from the temporary bus shelter on Old Northern Road (shown in the map), about 400 metres north of Idlewild Road. Our traffic controllers will ensure the safe movement of buses, students and other road users through the area.

Once the work is complete, buses will permanently pick up and drop off students at the new bus shelter on Canoelands Road.

Site compound

We will establish a site compound on Old Northern Rd, opposite 3909 Old Northern Road. After we finish our work, we will remove the site compound and restore the area.

There will be temporary traffic changes during our work hours to ensure the work zone is safe. Please keep to speed limits and follow signs and traffic controllers’ directions. For the latest traffic updates, you can call 132 701, visit livetraffic.com or download the Live Traffic NSW App.
