New Brighton Road intersection - Bus stop improvements

Update

What

We are replacing the existing bus stop with a new bus stop and shelter. Work includes street lighting, footpaths, storm water drainage, footpath replacement, renewal of the bus stop shelter, and moving the kerb and channel.

Why

We’re making it easier and more pleasant to catch the bus by The Palms Shopping Centre by moving the bus stop, providing space for an indented double bus bay and a new bus shelter.

Where

New Brighton Road bus stop #39527 adjacent to The Palms Shopping Centre.

When

11 October 2021 to late-December 2021. Monday to Saturday, from 7am to 6pm (weather/site condition dependent).

Contact

The contractor is Isaac Construction. Phone 03 359 9145, Monday to Friday, 7am to 7pm.
Please advise us if you have specific property access requirements e.g. medical visits, home help, large vehicle deliveries and planned works.

Details

  • This project will relocate the existing bus stop #39527 60m closer to Marshland Road intersection, and move the bus stop out of the shadow of the shopping centre.
  • The new bus stop location will be adjacent to the existing mall car park on New Brighton Road and include an indented bus bay which will increase space and access through the road corridor.
  • The new bus stop will provide improved facilities including a nine meter bus shelter, planting, cycle stands and improved lighting.

Impact on traffic

  • From late November the bus stop at the location of the new indented bus bay on New Brighton Road will be open and the temporary bus stop at 35 New Brighton Rd will be closed.  Construction of the bus shelter and other minor footpath works are ongoing and expected to be completed mid-December.
  • The footpath on the north side of New Brighton Road (Palms mall side) will remain closed between the entrance of the Palms car park through to Golf Links Road.  A pedestrian detour on the south side of New Brighton Road will remain in place until works are complete.

Impact of work

  • Traffic management will remain in place on New Brighton Road until planned works are complete in mid-late December.
