Chief Minister Stanhope is celebrating the completion of the $1.8 million Flemington Road bus lane:
Work has been completed on the $1.8 million Flemington Road bus lane that will reduce travel times for bus patrons travelling from Gungahlin to the City by up to 10 minutes, Chief Minister and Minister for Transport, Jon Stanhope, announced today.
“With the rapid population growth on Canberra’s north, the Gungahlin to City bus route has become one of the busiest in the ACT with over 300 buses using the road on weekdays,” Mr Stanhope said.
“The new $1.8 million bus lane on Flemington Road allows for priority access to public transport which will significantly decrease bus travel times to the City, by around five to 10 minutes in peak traffic.”
Oh for the heady days when Simon Corbell promised us bus lanes able to arrive buses in Civic before they left Belconnen.
