The morning transit lane from balgowlah to neutral bay; report on long term trends and reevaluation of initial performance

On the 25th November, 1974 a transit lane was introduced along Sydney road, manly road, spit road and military road, which forms a continuous route (spit bridge route) between balgowlah and cremorne. The kerbside lane was reserved for use by specified vehicles: omnibuses, vehicles carrying three or more persons, taxi cabs, motorcycles, hire cars and vehicles turning left at or before the next intersection. The transit lane has since been extended at each end. Major surveys of car and bus travel times, traffic volumes and occupancies were carried out by the Department of Motor Transport in one week of: October, 1974; (before the transit lane was introduced); March, 1975 and October, 1975. The NRMA collected car travel time data for one week of: March, 1974 to 1978; August, 1975 to 1977; and October, 1975 to 1978. The October, 1978 study included counts of car and bus travel times, traffic volumes and occupancies to assess long term trends.
