We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to extend the dedicated kerbside bus lane on Halsey Street between Victoria Street West and Fanshawe Street. The changes include:
- Extension of the dedicated kerbside bus lane to operate at all times.
- Changing the existing through lane to a left only lane.
- Changing the adjacent right only lane to a shared through and right lane.
- Installation of advanced stop boxes.
Why the changes are needed
This is expected to reduce delays for buses turning left onto Fanshawe Street from Halsey Street improving the efficiency of the bus network. Currently, buses are waiting on average 4-5 minutes to turn left from Halsey Street onto Fanshawe Street during evening peak traffic.
