Changes to Bus Lane Scheme from 1 April 2007


1 April 2007 - Changes To Bus Lane Scheme

There will be changes to the bus lane scheme from 1 April 2007. The details are as follows:
Changes to the scheme:
i. Evening bus lane hours will be moved to a slightly later slot to reflect current traffic patterns which indicate that evening traffic volumes tend to peak around the 6.00pm mark
The Saturday bus lane hours will no longer apply at these locations, due to the lighter traffic volumes noted on Saturdays.

By now, motorists should have received the information pack that contains an information brochure which explains the changes to the bus lane scheme and commonly asked questions in four official languages.
A decal with the new bus lane hours is also included in the information kit. Motorists can place the decals on the windscreen of their cars as a reminder of the changes to the Bus Lane Scheme.
