Bus Stop upgrades
- Project typeInfrastructure upgrade
- Project scheduleJun 2020 - Dec 2020
We're carrying out the upgrade of nine bus stops across the Cessnock Local Government Area. The project will see four new bus stops installed and five upgrades to existing shelters.
The upgrades will ensure better accessibility for residents of all abilities in the community. It is also hoped the new and improved bus stops will encourage more people in our community to use public transport.
Following investigation, a number of bus stops initially proposed for upgrade were found to be obsolete. In consultation with the community and major bus service operators, alternate sites with better accessibility and pathway connectivity were chosen.
The final locations for bus stop upgrades are as follows:
New bus shelters to be installed
- High Street, Greta
- Mayne Street, North Rothbury
- Wollombi Road, Bellbird
- Richmond Street, Kitchener
Upgrades to existing bus shelters
- Millfield Road, Paxton
- Wollombi Road, Cessnock (2 sites)
- Kearsley Road, Aberdare
- Wine Country Drive, North Rothbury
This project is part of the Country Passenger Transport Infrastructure Grants Scheme 2017-2019. Under this grant Transport for NSW will contribute $50,000. Completion of upgrades is expected December 2020.
