Upgrade works will include a mix of treatments including the installation of tactile indicators to help people with vision impairment, the establishment of safer boarding points, the erection of new signage and support poles, and the construction of connecting paths.

“If we want people in the Hunter using public transport we need to make it an attractive option,” Minister for the Hunter Yasmin Catley said.

“Bus stops are a window to a crucial part of our integrated transport system in the Hunter.

“These stops need to be user-friendly for everyone including older passengers and those with a disability.”

Member for Port Stephens and Minister for Disability Inclusion Kate Washington said, “The NSW Labor Government is injecting $1.6 million to improve public transport infrastructure across regional NSW and Port Stephens is a big beneficiary.

“Port Stephens will be getting two new bus shelters, and twelve will be made more accessible, enabling local residents to catch buses more easily.

“By investing in better bus stops we’re delivering on our commitment to make NSW more accessible and inclusive – one bus stop at a time.”
