Adelaide Street Bus Stop Precinct Improvements Trial

Brisbane City Council will commence construction of the Adelaide Street Bus Stop Precinct Improvements Trial in January 2019, weather permitting. The project aims to improve the passenger experience, through the installation of wayfinding signage and rationalisation of street furniture at several stops. This project aligns with Council’s Brisbane Vision 2031 to provide a safe, accessible and well-connected city for everyone.

About the project 

Adelaide Street is the primary east-west connection for bus services travelling into and through the Brisbane City centre. The overall increase in bus services and the many bus stops spread out along the street have made it more difficult for pedestrians to navigate this area and access bus services.

Council is seeking to address these issues by improving accessibility to bus services along Adelaide Street between Edward Street and George Street.

Benefits

The Adelaide Street Bus Stop Precinct Improvements Trial seeks to:

  • improve urban amenity
  • enhance bus system legibility and useability
  • maintain bus operational efficiency and capacity. 

Project scope

This project aims to make it easier for passengers to identify and access bus stops and improve pedestrian thoroughfare along Adelaide Street.

Works involve installation of a new wayfinding system suite of signage between Edward Street and George Street, including:

  • bus stop identifier signage
  • bus route and timetable information panels
  • bus stop/platform identification signs attached to shelter awning
  • gateway entry signs at intersections of Adelaide Street with George Street, Albert Street and Edward Street.

In addition, street furniture on the southern side of Adelaide Street (between George Street and Edward Street) will be rationalised by:

  • aligning seating to be parallel to the street
  • realigning bins and bike racks to improve pedestrian thoroughfare on Adelaide Street.

These works will start from 14 January 2019 and are expected to be completed in late January 2019, weather permitting. Works will be undertaken at night, from Sunday to Thursday between 7pm and 5am, when traffic volumes are lowest. This is to ensure the safety of road users and workers and to minimise traffic disruptions.

Pedestrian thoroughfare and bus services along this section will not be affected, and access to all services will be maintained during the works.
