City Bus Station changes
« on: October 26, 2018, 10:08:50 AM »
Work is about commence on extending City Bus Station along Alinga St (between Northbourne & West Row). This will also involve converting the existing Alinga St stops at Canberra House to on-street parking.

Quote from: Media Release
Work expands on Sunday 4 November to connect the signature light rail stop with an extended City Bus Station along Alinga Street West.

By getting the City Bus Station extension underway now we will be ready for the new transport network in 2019, with light rail and more frequent bus services in a modern interchange.

The first construction activity on Alinga Street is planned to take place on the quietest day of trade, Sunday 4 November. Road crews will repair the road surface to make it ready for new line marking.

Parking spots will remain in place on Alinga Street as sign posted until 17 November when new five minute spots will open on the block between Moore and Marcus Clarke Streets, close to Australia Post, the Jolimont Centre and the ACT Health Clinic.

Buses will begin operating from Alinga Street West on Saturday 17 November.

Location and timing of construction works

Works are planned to be carried out from Sunday 4 November to January 2019 on Alinga Street between Northbourne Avenue and Marcus Clarke Street. Additional works will be undertaken in mid 2019 to install bus shelters that meet the heritage requirements of the area.

Well, they didn't commence use this week. Signage on Alinga St says parking will be permitted until Friday.

The two new stops appear to be 3418 & 3419. The existing Alinga St stops (Canberra House / ACT Health) have been retained, but reduced in size.

[Update] Based on Google Maps, all ACT Health stop routes will move to #3418 (GPO). Stop #3419 will be the same as #3404 (Platform 3). Unsure whether #3042 (Canberra House) will change.
