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.

Bu­sonly lanes are de­signed to im­prove O-Bahn ac­cess and re­duce PT travel times
