Quote from: Bus 400 on March 17, 2012, 03:52:05 pmBut I don't see that right turn from Statton Street onto Ashley Drive working for Routes 67 & 68 during peak.
Quote from: ACTbusspotter on March 18, 2012, 01:12:53 pmThat still is the plan, just not this year - they have to build Erindale Bus Station first. While I don't agree with it, I can understand why they want to do it. But adding an extra 5 to 10 minutes (allowing for connections) onto journeys from Gowrie / Fadden / Chisholm / Richardson / Gilmore etc to Woden and beyond is hardly going to result in an increase in public transport usage. And the changes shown would also increase travel time from south-east Monash (Cockcroft / Barraclough) to both Tuggeranong and Woden.To be even remotely acceptable, they would need to run Xpresso services Tuggeranong - Erindale - City and/or extend peak services to Woden.
QuoteAgreed. They could just as easily re-direct those routes along Sternberg Cr, although Sternberg/Erindale gets busy during peak as well.
Quote from: Buzz Killington on March 18, 2012, 02:00:32 pm... the idea of cutting half the district's access to "one bus" to Woden, even during off-peak, is ridiculous. Really hope that the final plan is nothing like this.
