New Takalvan St bus facility complete

Bus services will start and finish at a new facility on Takalvan Street, with the $3.6 million State Government project now operational.

Bundaberg MP Tom Smith said the facility, near Sugarland Plaza, had modern seating and sheltered waiting areas that delivered improved accessibility, comfort and safety for all users.

“The opening of the new bus station marks an important step towards a more connected, safe and efficient transport system for all users,” Mr Smith said.

“Relocating the bus facility from the shopping centre car park to Takalvan Street will also improve the efficiency of bus operations in this busy area.

“Passenger experience will be enhanced with new amenities, which include a new accessible platform, modern seating and sheltered waiting areas.”

Mr Smith said new traffic signals and a dedicated bike lane were built to improve safety for motorists, pedestrians and bike riders.

“The new bus facility’s location will provide improved access for customers travelling on the public transport network and improved accessibility,” Mr Smith said.

“These upgrades will assist our local transport providers including Stewart and Sons and Duffy’s Buses to continue to provide a great service for the Bundaberg community.”

  1. really, $3.6 million for a couple of prefabbed shelters and a bit of turf, money would have been better spent on some social housing for Bundy’s homeless.

  2. Theres an extensive amount of homeless support in Bundaberg already the campaign that set it up was around 25 years ago & combines efforts from a multitude of organizers. For more information https://formstmp.bundaberg.qld.gov.au/FC-7-247.pdf

    Shocking we still see the occasional person sleeping on the street usually on 1 of these bus shelters.

  3. Re Paul. Any work the government ever does is massively price inflated. This is not $3.6 million worth of work it’s almost nothing. Would be lucky if the real cost was $10k. Fake numbers don’t help fund homeless accommodation.

  4. Covert the old bus stop into car parks & add some E- Scooter parks near the new bus stop.

  5. remember there was a engineering study done first so that costs a fair bit too. and it wasnt just a bus shelter there’s a set of traffic lights and islands too.
