New rural school bus shelters

SCHOOL children in some rural areas will benefit from a recycling initiative of the Gladstone Regional Council.

The council upgraded bus stops to be compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 and ended up with six “old-style” shelters that were not compliant.

The non-compliant shelters have been temporarily relocated to council depots, with two donated by council to Edenvale Aged Care Facility.

At Tuesday’s council meeting, the council agreed to relocate the remaining four shelters and funds for the installation of these bus shelters will be considered in the 2011/12 budget deliberations

The new locations will be Gentle Annie Road at the intersection with Langmorn School Road; Awoonga Dam Road at the intersection with Panorama Circuit; Awoonga Dam Road before Pikes Crossing Road; and Tableland Road at the Wooderson Road Intersection.

These four locations are all on the rural school bus routes.

With the upgrades ongoing until 2022, It is estimated that a total of 20 bus shelters could be made available as progress continues.
