With the new timetable for the 161 North Head Loop bus service coming into effect tomorrow, the previous caveat that the service runs as a short working only as far as the Quarantine Station has been removed. This short working was caused by the run-around loop at North Head being closed by a fire in October. The National Park Service say that this is unlikely to change until at least late this year and possibly not until 2022. There was an interesting incident a couple of weeks ago when an articulated bus when down to North Head by mistake and then had to back into a 3-point turn in a narrow parking bay to return. The driver later said “ I knew I wasn’t supposed to go down there, but the GPS said I could – so I did.”
So a generic question arises – how does TfNSW learn of such things – does it have to ask or does it require that the road managers have to be pro-active by forwarding road closure and re-opening information on their own initiative.
