$209m Perth Busport on track for completion next year

A new video provides an insider’s view of Perth’s new underground busport in Wellington Street, which is on track to be completed next year, with excavation 70 per cent complete and the roof already installed.

Transport Minister Dean Nalder said construction of the $209 million project is a key part of the State Government’s integrated approach to transport planning and has been designed to cater to demand for at least the next 30 years.

“This video reveals the progress taking place beneath the city to ensure our public transport system is well placed to cater for demand in the future,” Mr Nalder said.

“By 2031, there will be 38,500 passenger movements at the busport and it will be used by more than 200 buses an hour at peak – that’s hundreds if not thousands of cars off our roads,” the Minister said.

By the time it opens, a project to install real-time tracking software in every Transperth bus will also be complete, meaning passengers will be able to use the Transperth website or app to see exactly when their service will arrive.

“This government is investing heavily and using modern technology to make public transport more reliable and more attractive now and in the future,” Mr Nalder said.

“Our transport is also getting smarter – the installation of an airport-style Dynamic Stand Management System will allow the new busport to accommodate 50 per cent more bus movements than the old Wellington Street Bus Station.”

As each bus approaches, the system allocates it a stand which is or will soon be vacated. Screens at each entrance and throughout the facility will notify passengers where they can board the newly arrived service.
