Do commuters dream of an open buslane?

By riotous 19 August 2010 7

Does anyone have the inside word on when the bus lane on Barry Drive will open?  It seems the road works have been complete for some time now, and the entire stretch of bus lane is closed only because of some final work on the bike path(!) right down near the lights at ANU.

Every time I catch the bus, I find myself looking longingly at the open road on the other side of the orange poles, and every time I’m in the car I find myself wondering why we are still doing 60 when the road is finished and could be used…

What’s Your opinion?

You do 60 through there? Why wont you think of the children? Speed up! You’re a danger to every other driver who’s already doing 90.

I’ve been aching for the 1st section bike lane (apart from the tree). After the side street, I’d happily ride just outside the bus lane, same as before. Its held up for political grandstanding?

Even the bus drivers don’t know, at least according to this:

This road seems to of been finished at least a month ago… Shame its still closed.. I dont understand why the first 90% of the road isn’t open…

Anyone know if it will eventually be a T2 lane also ?

You’re singing my tune, Riotous.

Thought I saw a crew there fixing up that toppled tree in the bus lane before the bridge on the way through this morning.
