Bus lanes are being installed by Northlands Shopping Centre to improve the reliability and travel times of public transport along Main North Road. A fulltime northbound bus lane will be added and the hours of the southbound bus lane will be extended.

We consulted on this project towards the end of 2017 and Councillors decided to proceed with a slightly amended design in October 2018. Read more about the consultation(external link) or have a look at the plans. [, 614 KB]
