New Bus Shelters

Lane Cove is now home to nine new bus shelters installed in the past few weeks. These shelters are the first stage of works which will see more than 70 new bus shelters installed or upgraded to meet requirements set by the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) over the next four months.

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.
