AdShel shelters

The fairly daggy blue-grey metal shelter on the intertown blue route in Launceston St has been removed this week & replaced with an AdShel. The ultra-daggy shelter on the other side (northbound) needs replacement with some larger and more weatherproof than your standard AdShel.

Work is almost completed on the relocation (northwards) of the Calwell Bus Station & shelter; it features a new Adshel in lieu of the former blue painted 'tin shelter' and the bike racks which'd been installed at the old bus stop site have been moved to the new site.  New timetable bollard also installed.

The old shelter and bus stop site was still in use today.

The new Calwell bus station shelter was commissioned in late February, but then de-commissioned earlier this week, with the old shelter now back in service. The new Adshel has been taped out of bounds and the new blade has had its TT info removed. TT's have been relocated to the old shelter area.

Appears that there may be some unfinished work still required on the Adshel.

New AdShel has been installed on Alinga St where the Taxi Rank is currently located. Old shelter now fenced off pending removal. (Like all recent installations, new shelter has no glass - except for the Ad panel.)

New Super Adshel being constructed @ Athllon Dv, Torrens appears to incorporate space for a monitor of some kind, possibly a real time information monitor.

Junior Boys Grammar has recently received a major stop AdShel shelter, this is the school only stop. That will now be outside the school & buses will no longer have to squeeze in & out.

Pretty sure it is an Adshel, but a new large shelter has finally being put up at Stop 2, Athllon/Learmonth (Kambah). I believe it was put up yesterday.

yeh, it is, just with no ad placement on it. I wonder how much money was wasted on that to put it up... i say that cause what was the point in putting in more concrete in place when there's a kerb in the way for the buses to line up properly? may as well have left it and put the shelter in where the sign use to sit...

The Constitution Av shelters may well be large CAM shelters  (like Kings and Commonwealth Av).

In any case, since they are within the Triangle, they will not display any advertising.
