New bus shelters and upgrades for Bundamba

23 September 2021

Six new bus shelters and 11 upgrades will be delivered across the local Bundamba community as part of an $8.6 million state-wide investment by the Palaszczuk Government.

Member for Bundamba Lance McCallum said two new shelters would be installed at stops on Riverview Road at Riverview, along with single shelters at stops on Old Ipswich Road, Riverview; River Road, Dinmore; Jeffrey Street, Bundamba; and Gorry Street, Goodna.

Mr McCallum said accessibility would be improved at various stops in Riverview, Ebbw Vale, Dinmore, Bundamba, Bellbird Park and Goodna.

“We’re committed to creating a better, more integrated transport public transport network that is accessible to everyone,” Mr McCallum said.

“Whether it’s parents pushing prams, our elderly using walking sticks, or those with a disability, we’re working hard to eliminate barriers for people to access local public transport.

“The upgraded bus stops will complement six new shelters – all part of our $500 million investment to improve accessibility.

“The new shelters will provide a more comfortable waiting environment for commuters across our local community.”

Transport and Main Roads Minister Mark Bailey said the Palaszczuk Government was transforming the way Queenslanders travelled across the state.

“We’re moving to the next stage of our $371 million smart ticketing roll-out, which will mean for the first time, regional Queensland commuters will use the same ticketing system as those in the south-east,” Mr Bailey said.

“All up, 550 smart ticketing readers will be installed at 154 train stations, along with bus services, allowing commuters to pay using a credit card, smart phone or watch.

“Importantly, smart ticketing will allow regional commuters to access real time travel information about bus and train services.”
