Public engagement – Draft Scotland
Island Traffic Management Plan
Sunday, 9th December, 2018 at 9:30am for a
Council plans to commence public engagement on the new draft Scotland
Island Traffic Management Plan so we can safely manage vehicles on the
Island and prevent excessive damage to the roads.
at the Fire Station.
We will be coming to
Scotland Island on 9th December, 2018 to have a
public meeting to explain the reasons behind the need for a
we are going to implement it, the benefits to the residents, and the
time frame for the plan to be fully implemented.
The key actions under the
draft plan are to:
Council is currently writing to all property owners and tenants and
other key stakeholders to invite them to provide written comments on
the Draft Traffic Management Plan, which will be provided with the
access to the roads on the Island to approved vehicles holding a
Scotland Island permit that are registered in NSW;
- Introduce safety
improvements to facilitate the conditional
registration of some of the existing unregistered and therefore
illegally used vehicles;
- Require all operators
of Vehicles with Permits to hold a valid NSW licence;
- Restrict parking on roads to designated parking
areas, as the proposed
future road width will eliminate legal on-street
parking, except for areas constructed for this purpose.
Enquiries are to be directed to me via 1300 434
434 and I personally extend an invitation to the Scotland Island
Community to attend the Public
Meeting on Sunday, 9th December, 2018 at
9:30am for a 10:00am start at the Fire Station.

Operating Hours Extended
for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced the operating hours of
Pittwater’s on-demand transport service have been extended.
The increasingly popular Keoride transport trial, operated by Keolis
Downer, has delivered 38,000 trips since it began in November 2017.
Operating hours have been extended until 11:30pm on Thursdays, Fridays
and Saturdays, and until 9pm on Sundays.
Keoride operating hours
from 15 November 2018 are:
Keoride allows commuters in Pittwater to book a vehicle at a time that
suits them, connecting their home address or designated local pick up
point to the nearest B-Line transport hub at Mona Vale, Warriewood or
- 6am – 10pm Mon – Wed
- 6am – 11:30pm
Thursday/Friday (previously 6am – 10pm)
- 7am – 11:30pm
Saturday (previously 7am – 7pm)
- 7am – 9pm Sunday
(previously 7am – 5pm)
“Keoride has revolutionised public transport in Pittwater,” Rob Stokes
“Our community’s particularly hilly geography makes access to some
streets and areas impossible for traditional buses.
“I’m delighted Keoride’s operating hours have been extended later into
the evening to provide further benefits and transport options for local
residents,” Rob Stokes said.
During the first 11 months of operations, Transport for NSW and Keolis
Downer have taken customer feedback on board, working to continuously
improve services to deliver an optimal Keoride passenger experience.
“As a public transport operator, we constantly focus on delivering a
service that is designed with people in mind and reduces the use of
individual cars. With 90% of our customers using Keoride to connect to
another transport mode, we really see the importance of this first and
last mile connectivity model to encourage modal shift,” said David
Franks, CEO of Keolis Downer.
Keoride operates in Pittwater using a fleet of passenger vehicles and
has become renowned for its personalised, frequent and direct services,
with friendly drivers being a core aspect of the service.
Each Keoride trip costs a flat fee of $3.10 per trip or $1.55 for
concession card holders.
The service can be booked through the Keoride app, onlinehttps://www.keoride.com.au/
or by phone 1800 536 743.
