Building for Fastway

To provide the bus lanes, guideways and junction changes needed to deliver the first class service that Fastway will offer, major construction is necessary on and alongside busy roads. Unfortunately, this brings with it inevitable temporary impacts on those who live and travel along the affected roads through traffic diversions, congestion, noise and inconvenience. Regrettably, the long term gain to the local community that Fastway offers can only come about after some short term pain.

Construction started in May 2002 with works in Coachmans Drive and along Southgate Avenue. Every effort is being made to minimise the disruption caused by these works, and the Fastway team apologies for any inconvenience caused and would like to thank you for your patience and tolerance during this time.

By Summer 2003, the first of the Fastway services are planned to start running. Subject to satisfactory funding and the completion of statutory procedures, construction is planned to continue with Phases 2 and 3 through 2003 and 2004, to bring you a fully operational service by early 2005.
