Donovan St, Blockhouse Bay – Bus lane

Consultation status: closed 3 October 2017

Proposal reference: NOP1718-017

We are proposing to establish a new bus lane between 39 and 93 Donovan Street, Blockhouse Bay. The proposed bus lane will operate 4pm-7pm, Monday-Friday. Double decker buses will also be introduced to this street in 2018.

Changes to Donovan Street include:

  • No stopping restrictions along the bus route during operating hours.
  • A clearway during operating hours between 33-39 Donovan St.
  • Upgrade of bus stop markings at 53 and 93 Donovan St to meet current standards, this will result in the loss of two car parks.
  • New bus lane signage and lane greening.

Why the changes are needed

This proposal aims to improve the efficiency and reliability of buses on Donovan Street. The proposed westbound bus lane will replicate the existing eastbound bus lane on the opposite side of the road.
