THE Green Shane Rattenbury yesterday did the honours for the completion of Gungahlin’s bus station.
The $3.325 million project to upgrade public transport facilities around the Gungahlin Town Centre precinct has been underway since July 2013.
“The completion of the project is great news for Gungahlin and an important step towards improving public transport infrastructure across Canberra, in time for ACTION’s new Network 14, and the commencement of light rail,” Shane said.
“The Hibberson Street bus stops have been replaced with a major, 30 metre long station providing improved shelter and seating as well as the installation of new bike racks. The project has also installed digital information displays which will utilise the ACTION’s new NXTBUS real-time information system.
“In addition to the major bus station and associated facilities, the project has delivered two new bus stops on Hibberson Street near Hinder Street; a new bus stop on each side of both Anthony Rolfe Avenue (west of Gribble Street); and two new bus layovers (Kate Crace Street and Anthony Rolfe Avenue) which include driver facilities and parking bays for buses.”
