In response to the NSW Health stay at home order, Council services, facilities and events have been impacted. Important changes to the status of Council services will take place from Monday 18 October 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the greater Newcastle and Hunter Valley areas, NSW Health has issued a stay at home order. Following the NSW Government's Roadmap to Reopening announcement, there will be further changes from Monday 18 October.
Council upgraded nine bus stops across the Cessnock Local Government Area. The project has four new bus stops installed and five upgrades to existing shelters. Completion of upgrades, new bus shelters and bus stops was delivered as scheduled in May 2021.
The upgrades have ensured better accessibility for residents of all abilities in the community, and the new bus stops have encouraged 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.
