The peak body for the Queensland bus industry fully supports a move by Labor’s Lord Mayoral candidate who has promised to build more bus indent bays around Brisbane’s peak hour roadways.
David Tape, Executive Director of Queensland Bus Industry Council (QBIC) says candidate Rod Harding’s plan to construct an extra 15 bus indent bays will contribute greatly to easing traffic congestion.
“Improving traffic flow must be a priority at all times and creating bays where buses will pull in to a designated stop, will ensure there is less stop-start traffic.”
“This will also help reduce frustration for vehicles forced to stop behind buses particularly along busy arterial corridors.”
Mr Tape says more importantly, extra indent bays will considerably improve traffic safety around the spots where commuters board and alight buses.
“QBIC knows full well the value and worth of these measures and fully endorses Mr Harding’s push,” said Mr Tape.
