George Herald - - ARBOUR WEEK -

GO GE­OR­GE has an­noun­ced the im­ple­men­ta­ti­on of a new tri­al bus stop in front of Ou­te­ni­qua High School as from Wed­nes­day 20 Sep­tem­ber. This bus stop will be kno­wn as the Ou­te­ni­qua stop and will be de­ve­lo­ped in­to a per­ma­nent bus stop should it im­pro­ve traf­fic flow suf­fi­cient­ly.

Ac­cor­ding to James Robb, GO GE­OR­GE ma­na­ger, the decision to e­rect a tri­al bus stop at the school was ma­de to re­lie­ve traf­fic con­ge­s­ti­on at the Wellington bus stop hig­her up the ro­ad, ne­ar the in­ter­secti­on of Wellington and Cour­te­nay Streets.

"GO GE­OR­GE will al­ways be an e­vol­ving and a­dap­ting pu­blic trans­port sy­stem. Ba­sed on feed­back from pas­sen­gers and re­le­vant ro­le play­ers, the ser­vi­ce is con­stant­ly re­fi­ned to suit the needs of pas­sen­gers and to meet o­pe­ra­ti­o­nal chal­len­ges," he said.

From Wed­nes­day 20 Sep­tem­ber, on­ly the fol­lo­wing rou­tes will stop at the Wellington stop:

1A New Da­wn Park - CBD 1B Har­mo­ny Park - CBD 60 Ro­se­da­le - CBD

60A Sy­fer­fon­tein/Ro­se­da­le - CBD

The fol­lo­wing rou­tes will stop at the Ou­te­ni­qua stop:

Plat­form A: 1A New Da­wn Park - CBD 1B Har­mo­ny Park - CBD

60 Ro­se­da­le - CBD

60A Sy­fer­fon­tein/Ro­se­da­le - CBD Plat­form B:

24 CBD - Loe­rie Park - Gar­den Rou­te Mall

53 Ro­se­moor

53B Ro­se­moor Ex­press

9 In­dus­tria - CBD

Ou­te­ni­qua stop on­ly trans­fer point for cer­tain rou­tes

Pas­sen­gers should ta­ke no­te that tho­se wan­ting to bo­ard or trans­fer to rou­tes 24 (CBD - Loe­rie Park - Gar­den Rou­te Mall), 53 (Ro­se­moor), 53B (Ro­se­moor Ex­press) and 9 (In­dus­tria - CBD), should wait at the new Ou­te­ni­qua stop Plat­form B, sin­ce the­se bu­ses will no lon­ger stop at the Wellington stop.

"On top of being a so­lu­ti­on to the chal­len­ge ex­pe­rien­ced at the Wellington stop, we al­so ex­pect that a lar­ge num­ber of pas­sen­gers, li­ke the Ou­te­ni­qua High School le­ar­ners, will find this new stop mo­re con­ve­nient and bet­ter sui­ted to their needs," said Robb.

All ro­ad u­sers are re­que­sted to be pa­tient and con­si­de­ra­te to­wards bu­ses u­sing the new stop, which will be an in-la­ne stop to en­s­u­re its ea­sy and smooth mo­vement back in­to traf­fic.
