No changes to bus routes until September

Feb 25, 2015Bus Express

In January many Bus Operators had to bear the brunt of the NSW government’s bad planning.

When George Street closed to prepare for construction of the South East Light Rail Network, the lack of preparation by the NSW Government meant that many bus drivers were forced to wait for hours in chaotic traffic, stressed and dealing with the frustration of commuters.

The RTBU Bus Division raised the issue in the media and it now appears that the Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian has taken note of our concerns. In an announcement about the light rail yesterday the Minister stressed that as construction continued, “detailed changes to traffic and bus routes will be communicated well in advance.”

The Transport Minister also confirmed that major construction on George Street is not set to start until September or October and that there will be no changes to bus routes during this time.

Construction on other parts of the line is due to start after Anzac Day.

We can only hope that the Minister keeps her word and that our Bus Operators know well in advance about any traffic disturbances or route changes.
