Proposed Nixon Street School Bus Interchange

Council have release the Draft Plans to relocate the Balaclava Road school bus interchange to Nixon Street for public comment for a period of four weeks, commencing on 26 February 2018 and concluding on 26 March 2018.

About this project

The Balaclava Road / Hawdon Street / New Dookie Road / Verney Road intersection will be upgraded from a roundabout to a signalised intersection to reduce congestion and improve safety, particularly during peak demand periods.

The continued operation of the existing school bus interchange, located on the northern side of Balaclava Road, would be difficult to accommodate during both the construction phase and the operational phase of the upgraded intersection.

As such, it is desirable to relocate the existing Balaclava Road Bus Interchange before works commence on the upgrading of the intersection. This will help to minimise any disruptions to the construction works and to the continued operation of the Bus Interchange.
