6.4 Future need and timing for an extension to the Bondi Junction heavy rail line

 

 

Ultimately, if significant numbers of city-bound morning peak hour bus services (and the equivalent outbound bus services during the afternoon peak hour) are not able to be retained for the Anzac Parade and Alison Road routes serving Randwick LGA, this will bring forward the required future timing for an extension to the Bondi Junction heavy rail line, either to a terminus at Kingsford or Maroubra (or even as a loop continuing via Mascot connecting back to the Illawarra line at Sydenham). Also, due to the relatively minor capacity increase to the existing Anzac Parade and Alison Road corridor bus based public transport systems which will result from the Light Rail System and the desire for more walkable areas of Randwick LGA in the future, an extension to the Bondi Junction heavy rail line remains a necessary longer term option to increase the public transport access capacity for all areas of Randwick LGA. This ultimate future “heavy rail’ extension option would be potentially required within the current timeframe (before 2031) of the residential growth strategy for Randwick LGA, if a significant proportion (50% approximately) of the current city-bound morning peak hour bus services (and the equivalent outbound bus services during the afternoon peak hour) are not able to be retained for both the Anzac Parade and Alison Road routes.
