New B-Line double decker buses will hit the road later this year, delivering more reliable and frequent services to bus passengers travelling between the Northern Beaches and the CBD.

"This new turn-up-and-go service will mean a bus every five minutes during the peak periods in the peak direction, and every 10 minutes during other times of the day," a Transport for NSW spokesperson says.

Once complete, bus users on the Lower North Shore will be able to catch a new B-Line service from stops at Spit Junction and Neutral Bay.

"We’re building a new B-Line bus stop at the site of the former Greater Union cinema complex at Spit Junction.

"A new indented bus bay will support both B-Line and regular services, helping to reduce congestion on Military Road by allowing buses to pick-up and drop-off passengers without impeding other traffic.

The site will also include a new pedestrian plaza and early works are expected to take around eight weeks to complete.

Site establishment will include the removal of the building’s façade and external awnings, the installation of hoardings and scaffolding along Spit Road and Clifford Street.

To ensure the safety of the community and to help reduce the impact on drivers, some work will take place out of hours between 7pm and 6am.

Affected local residents and businesses will be notified prior to the major demolition work commencing while traffic controllers will be on hand to assist drivers and pedestrians.
