The contract to deliver Sydney’s new B-Line works has been awarded to Fulton Hogan.
The northern beaches are on track to benefit from the most convenient public transport option the area has ever had. This is complimented by a recent announcement for the contract to deliver 38 brand new double-deck buses, with features including seating with more leg room and charging stations for mobile devices.
Fulton Hogan Construction will be responsible for delivering new commuter car parks at Mona Vale, Warriewood, Narrabeen and Manly Vale, creating more than 900 new spaces where riders will be able to leave their cars and link with B-Line bus services.
The company will also deliver 18 new bus stops along the B-Line route at Mona Vale, Warriewood, Narrabeen, Collaroy, Dee Why, Brookvale, Manly Vale, Spit Junction and Neutral Bay. The new bus stops will include better facilities for customers and feature real-time service information for passengers. Welcome to 2016 northern beaches.
Road improvements for the B-Line route also include new bus bays, minor lane widening and new signals at select intersections. Some of these works will be finished before the first B-Line services roll out in late 2017. All work is expected to wrap up by 2019.
The Northern Beaches B-Line will provide turn-up-and-go services that will run at least every 10 minutes across the week, with services arriving every five minutes in peak times.
