NEW BUS SHELTER FOR PHEASANTS CREEK RESIDENTS

A new bus shelter on Kinglake-Whittlesea Road, Pheasants Creek will prevent people dangerously crossing the road to catch the Route 384 bus.

The only shelter that was previously available at the Kinglake-Whittlesea Road bus stop, was under a local shop’s awning across the road.

Labor Upper House Member for Northern Victoria, Jaclyn Symes, welcomed the new shelter, which will improve safety and provide protection from the weather at the stop. The new pre-fabricated shelter has been installed at the bus stop, with new seating and room for passengers to stand. “The new bus shelter on Kinglake-Whittlesea Road means locals can now wait for the bus at the designated stop in bad weather,” Ms Symes said.

“Not only will this improve safety for passengers, but drivers who travel along this busy road.”
