Tuross Head residents will soon have a safer place to catch buses to afar at a new boarding point and shelter off the Princes Highway.
Work will begin next week to relocate the Tuross Head intra and interstate bus stop from the Princes Highway to the nearby car park off Hector McWilliam Drive.
It comes after lobbying by the Tuross Head Progress Association to see the bus shelter moved from the highway to the carpark created by Transport for NSW in 2018 as part of an intersection upgrade.
Eurobodalla Council supported the move to reduce the risk to all road users and, in consultation with THPA, undertook the investigation and design.
Council then successfully applied for funding under the stimulus programs supported by the NSW and Australian Governments.
As part of the project, the carpark will be widened and the pavement strengthened to take buses. A new shelter will also be installed. Lighting will be added in late 2021.
