Bus Stop Upgrade Works for August & September 2012

12 September, 2012

The Lord Mayor and I are working towards upgrading Brisbane's bus stops to to meet the Disability and Discrimination Act (DDA) by providing improved access for public transport users of all abilities.

Many of Brisbane’s bus stops have already been upgraded however some still require modifications. Bus Stop ugrading works will include:

* Ensuring that concrete waiting areas and boarding slabs are of an adequate size and level
* Installation of tactiles at the bus stop sign, which provide a location indicator for the visually impaired
* Repositioning bus seating or shelter locations to ensure there is adequate waiting area for wheelchair and pram users

Our aim is to ensure at least 55% of Brisbane bus stops are upgraded by December 2012.
