The Maude Street Bus Interchange and Plaza redevelopment commenced earlier this year and is on track for completion by mid-December 2019.
When opened, the new facilities will provide male and female toilets, changing places amenities, three breastfeeding rooms and baby change facilities, accessible amenities and a bike storage locker. The new bus interchange and plaza area together will create a user friendly open space with plaza area the focal point consisting of landscaped open spaces, lighting upgrades and street furniture.
Greater Shepparton City Council Director Infrastructure Phil Hoare said “It’s great to see these works progressing with the plaza and bus interchange taking shape. The new toilet facilities are almost complete. Major services have been relocated, tree cells, new footpath, paving and bus shelters installed. The kerb and channel for the new section of road and bus interchange are also now complete. The road pavement is now being constructed with the center of road streetscape works and pedestrian crossings to follow.”
“I would like to thank everyone for their patience during the works, I am sure everyone will enjoy the new streetscape and facilities once they are completed,” said Mr Hoare.
Pedestrian access to residences and businesses in the area of the construction works will be maintained at all times until construction is completed.
Council advises commuters to be aware of changes to traffic flow and pedestrian access and to observe road signage in the area. Please take extra care while travelling in this area and make allowances for potential delays due to the works.
