Installation of dedicated 'BUS ONLY' lane markings along O-Bahn alignment

CONNECT - Message from the Chief Executive

28 November 2017

As part of the $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project, dedicated ‘Bus Only’ lane markings will be installed along the O-Bahn alignment in early December 2017.

These lanes will be implemented between the end of the busway at Gilberton and the cross-city priority (bus) lanes on Grenfell Street.

Lane markings will help to reinforce the intended use of the bus lanes installed along Hackney Road as part of the O-Bahn City Access Project. Once completed, the project will improve travel times and reliability for users of the O-Bahn and reduce city traffic congestion, particularly on the Inner Ring Route.

Dedicated ‘Bus Only’ lanes feature a red painted outline and a red and white ‘Bus Only’ message.  

The lanes will be operational upon completion of the markings.

Motorists are advised that a maximum penalty of $2500 applies for driving in a red ‘Bus Only’ lane. This fine does not apply when travelling for up to 100 metres in the sections marked with white lines only.
