Stop Buses Blocking Punch St. No mini bus depot in our small street. Share the load Mosman
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
We ask to stop having this small, narrow street blocked with a bevy of buses morning and night, forcing road users to drive up the wrong side of the road, while overtaking up to 3 buses. To add insult to injury 5 additional buses have been added in the morning between 7.30-9.30am. This is not for a few minutes each day. Our driveways are completely blocked daily. The pedestrian and driver danger, extra 24/7 noise and pollution has increased to an unsustainable level and needs to be reduced. We ask to move some of the extra buses clogging our little street to surrounding areas and stop the not in service buses using this street 24/7 as a means to avoid traffic lights. Share the load Mosman! We are not anti buses, just anti this narrow street copping them all and being the only alternative.
Since the closure of Clifford St all their bus services have been moved to Punch St. The number of each service is now every few minutes. We have no respite. Previously there was no service on a Sunday, not anymore. Residents were not consultated or considered. There is a processsion of buses we and other road users have to overtake using the rhs of the road creating a dangerous st and an insurance nightmare. Your insurance will not cover you if you use the rhs of the road, you will be at fault. Transport NSW will not compensate you either.
We have the additional problem of all the not in service buses 24/7 coming from Balmoral and Mandalong rd now using this street as a thoroughfare to Military Rd rather than staying on Awaba St and Military rd or being shared with Clifford St. They are not stopping here, just avoiding traffic lights. This is occurring 7 days a week until after midnight. Traffic is not bad at those times there is no need to wake us up by using this street.
