Bus Stop Program

The current legislation is by 31st December 2022 (Target Date) that all bus stops are to fully comply with relevant standards. The program this year is targeting several key bus stops on collector roads to bring them to a state of basic DDA compliance. Within the current program this predominantly includes; providing a level (1.0-2.5% cross fall) boarding point with a provisional minimum space of 1.54 x 2.07m to facilitate the manoeuvring of a wheelchair and installation of tactile ground surface indicators.

Current Program

  • Nairne MS – Stop 72 (opposite the District Hotel)

Scope: regrade and lower pavers locally around bus stop and install tactile’s to standard layout. No inclusion of any street furniture due to potential clashes with adjoining property owners plans for their frontage, and the shelter availability under the adjoining buildings veranda.

Outcome: Provide a basic compliant boarding point with  a compliant gradient wheelchair manoeuvring space (2.07m x 1.54m).

The work started 17 April and is expected to be completed by Tuesday at the latest (in time for the Anzac day).
