Dedicated ‘Bus Only’ lane markings will be implemented as features of Adelaide’s $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project
Dedicated ‘Bus Only’ lane markings will be implemented as features of Adelaide’s $160 million O-Bahn City Access Project.
Works commenced in early December, with dedicated lanes to appear between the end of the busway at Gilberton and the cross-city priority bus lanes on Grenfell Street.
The lane markings are designed to reinforce the intended use of the bus lanes installed along Hackney Road as part of the O-Bahn City Access Project, improving travel times and reliability for users of the O-Bahn and reducing city traffic congestion – particularly on the Inner Ring Route.
Dedicated bus-only lanes feature a red painted outline and a red and white ‘Bus Only’ message. The lanes will be operational upon completion of the markings.
Motorists face a maximum penalty of $2500 for driving in a red ‘Bus Only’ lane. The fine will not apply when travelling for up to 100 metres in sections marked with white lines only.
