Queuing Space At Bus Stops

Printer-friendly version

Consideration will be given to the location of bus stops on footpaths to ensure there is sufficient space for people to pass bus passengers waiting at the stops and, similarly, in relation to people in outdoor seating for restaurants/Cafés/Bar.

Temporary buildout platforms of various types have been pioneered in other cities and, in the next number of weeks, a pilot installation will be put in place at a trial location in the city. If this is successful, this technique will be considered in locations where there are high numbers of people queueing and the footpath is very narrow. In some cases bus stops may be temporarily suspended or moved if social distancing cannot be maintained.
