Bus lane outside UWA reaches halfway mark

Each night, construction teams are creating a bus-only lane outside The University of Western Australia to help improve traffic flow along Mounts Bay Road and Stirling Highway.

Each night, construction teams are creating a bus-only lane outside The University of Western Australia to help improve traffic flow along Mounts Bay Road and Stirling Highway.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said work had reached the halfway mark on creating a west-bound lane, away from the city, from Hackett Drive to Broadway.
 
Once complete in August, the Mounts Bay Road bus priority lane will help Transperth buses bypass heavy traffic and provide a faster, more reliable service to bus passengers.
 
The six-month project includes:

  • reducing the median strip between Hackett Drive and Winthrop Avenue to create a new traffic lane
  • modifying the Mounts Bay Road and Broadway intersection
  • road resurfacing
  • a new shared footpath and cycle path.

The bus priority lane will be a full-time, bus-only lane.  Motorists - including taxis - cannot park, stop or use the bus lane, except to exit or enter a side street or driveway.
 
When entering the bus-only lane, you may drive for up to 100 metres in the bus lane before merging into the main traffic.
 
When exiting the bus-only lane, you may drive for up to 100m in the bus lane before turning into a side street or driveway.
 
Using a bus lane other than as outlined above is illegal and may result in a $100 fine.
