Victoria St W Pedestrian Improvements and Bus Stops

Victoria St W Pedestrian Improvements and Bus Stops

The Victoria Street West project was initiated by the re-routing of several western bus services which required space to terminate, lay-up and start new services.  During internal consultation with AT it was found that a new signalised crossing was proposed in the same section of Victoria Street West.  Consequently, the opportunity arose to combine the two projects.  
  

 

New signalised crossing and the adjacent bus stops

 

The final scheme design was for a mid-block signalised crossing outside 167 Victoria Street West with a bus layover stop to the west of the crossing and operational bus stops to the east between the crossing and Hardinge Street.

A significant kerb extension on the western side of Hardinge Street and the throat island shifted further east to narrow the Hardinge Street approach to a single lane.
