New Bus Shelters

March 2021 update

Works are recommencing for the roll out of Lane Cove's new bus shelter program. Construction of nine new shelters on Epping Road will commence on Monday 8 March. This involves some night works, however, where possible works will be carried out during the day. Notification letters to affected residents were delivered in late February. Works are expected to be completed at the end of March (weather permitting).

The locations of the nine new bus shelters are:

  • Epping Road near Centennial Avenue (south side)
  • Epping Road near Parklands Avenue (north side)
  • Epping Road near Tantallon Road (north side)
  • Epping Road near Cumberland Avenue (north side)
  • Epping Road near Sam Johnson Way (north side)
  • Epping Road near Wingadee Street (north side)
  • Epping Road near Coxs Lane (south side)
  • Epping Road near Munro Street (south side)
  • Epping Road near Centennial Avenue (north side)

New bus shelters for Lane Cove

More than 70 new bus shelters will be installed or upgraded in Lane Cove to meet requirements set by the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

As well as new signs illuminating the location of the bus stop, the new bus shelters will provide improved undercover space for all users. Members of the public, including wheelchair and vision impaired users, will be able to easily and safely manoeuvre around each shelter.

Some night works will be required due to RMS restrictions for works on roads with higher traffic volumes, which prohibits day works on these roads. The new shelters will be set back further from the kerb which will improve manoeuvrability in front of the shelters. All shelters will be installed to meet the current Australian Standards and safety requirements.

During construction, pedestrian access and vehicle access to private driveways will be maintained with the help of traffic controllers who will be onsite to ensure safe passage for vehicles and pedestrians at times when footpath access is affected.
