QuoteWhile traffic overtaking a stopped bus on the wrong side of the road would be unlikely, you could never rule it out.

QuoteLocation: Lyneham - south side of Archibald St west of Ashton St.Issue: Bus stop is located right on a pedestrian crossing. We're always taught from school days not to cross the road in front of a bus - this crossing however would seem to encourage that practice. While traffic overtaking a stopped bus on the wrong side of the road would be unlikely, you could never rule it out. So basically I think visibility and safety issues are present at this intersection.
QuoteLocation: Parkes - Commonwealth Ave in front of Hyatt Hotel. The three photos from left to right show the progression heading northwards towards the City.Issue: I once mentioned it elsewhere on the forum, but Bus Lane signage here is inconsistent. A Bus Lane also permits bikes, taxis etc. A Bus Only Lane permits buses only. So basically the above stretch is full of inconsistency - particularly at the end where the sign indicates Bus Lane but the road Bus Only!Idea: Since there is also an existing bike lane along this stretch of road (as shown in the last photo), then bikes don't really need to be permitted in the Bus Lane. As it's only a short section of road, I'm sure taxis could cope being in the regular line of traffic, so all signage on posts and the road should probably be converted to Bus Only.

QuoteOne thing I would like to know is what happened to the Red Gutter? ADFA has fresh looking Red Gutters, but no where else in Canberra does anymore.

Either get rid of one pair, or turn a pair into school stops only! (Not to mention, it is stupid when one passenger gets on at the first stop, then 4 get on at the second stop.)
Quote from: Sir Pompously on August 01, 2010, 08:53:38 PMOver signage at Canberran bus stops is normal. ACTION never take down old signs (Well they used to, but do not anymore). They only install new ones. It is ok, aslong as the signs do not contradict each other.
