Some of the links mentioned are already served by bus routes in the east . Such as Sydney Uni to Randwick via Green Square route 370. Randwick to Bondi Junction is quite well served by buses already with it being major bus corridor. Bondi Jn to Bondi Beach. Though Randwick to Maroubra no direct link via Avoca St exists anymore it use to with the route 359. Some of these transit corridors need better bus priority improvements but difficult with most roads being 2 or 4 lane streets. Imagine a bus lane taking over Bondi Rd or King St Newtown. These areas are NIMBY central.

Although there is no direct service along Avoca St, it is well served by nearby services within walking distance.

But if you want to go from Randwick to Maroubra or Eastgardens your only direct option is the 400/410 having to go via Kingsford & UNSW. There is no sort of direct north south route near Avoca St. All the others are indirect and have little detours.

I read in the local Central Sydney http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/newslo ... 872e5bf653
It spoke about a rapid bus route from Green Square to La Perouse though I don't see it any of the maps & CBD LR to Green Square. If a rapid bus route from Green Square to La Perouse were done it would make sense if it was done via Botany Rd to mirror the 309/L09

It's in the Draft Greater Sydney Services and Infrastructure Plan p.68: https://future.transport.nsw.gov.au/rea ... ture-plan/

In the 0-10yr timeframe for investigation of intermediate transit:
 Parramatta Road and Victoria Road transport improvements
 Parramatta T-Way to T-Way Link
 Infrastructure to support rapid bus connections between WSA, Liverpool, Penrith, Blacktown and Campbelltown-Macarthur (for priority planning)
 Service changes to connect to new train lines.
 New / improved services on key routes across Greater Sydney including:
 Parramatta to Bankstown to Hurstville / Kogarah rapid bus link
 Green Square to La Perouse rapid bus link
 Harbour CBD to Green Square mass transit link: Botany Road
 Eastern Suburbs to Inner West rapid bus links: Randwick to Sydney University to The Bays Precinct; Maroubra Junction to Sydney Airport to Marrickville
 Northern Beaches and Chatswood: improved bus services
 Between WSA, Liverpool, Penrith, Blacktown and Campbelltown-Macarthur: improved bus connections (for priority planning)
 Between South West Sydney and Illawarra: improved bus connections

From the diagram the line seems to run up Anzac Pde.

My mistake but the maps aren’t very geographically accurate at all it’s as if someone was playing joining the dots doesn’t make it for confusing reading on he map.

I wonder if the Dapto relocated to southern highlands will be known as Dapto Heights? The Dapto Dogs can be renamed the Royal Dapto Canine Event.

The fifth one of Mandonov's six maps ( the first big one ], has a red line running from "Harbour city" to Sydney University to Campsie, and according to the key or legend for the map, a red line is an "existing/committed light rail".

The randwick tram and the silverwater tram which isn't going to silverwater are also shown as the same red line.

I was unaware of any committment to build a tramway to Campsie. Or is that the existing Dulwich Hill tramway, which goes to neither Sydney University nor Campsie ?

In both cases (Sydney Uni and Campsie) you are looking at the wrong dot.

This is only a minor inconvenience. There is very little passenger generation along Avoca St, which is why they got rid of the 359 in the first place.
