New Victoria Point Central bus station works underway
By Clare Veness on 30 November 2018
Construction is underway on the $9.77 million Victoria Point’s new bus station that aims to deliver platforms on both sides of Cleveland – Redland Bay Road.
With an ideal location close to health services, shops, schools and the business district, the new bus station is set to allow more reliable connections to the surrounding public transport network, including Cleveland Station, Victoria Point Jetty and Redland Bay Marina. The station will also have the capacity for six buses at two sheltered platforms at the heart of Victoria Point and over the life of the project, it is expected to support an average of 24 jobs.
Upon completion next year, the station aims to provide an improved lighting, security cameras with 24-hour video recording, bike storage facilities and amenities for bus drivers. In general, its target is to improve safety, comfort and accessibility for everyone.
Until the new bus station will be completed, bus services would continue to run as normal to the existing bus stops on Bunker Road.
