Bus lanes are being installed by Northlands Shopping Centre to improve the reliability and travel times of public transport along Main North Road. We are installing a fulltime northbound bus lane and extending the hours of the southbound bus lane.

Main North Road bus lanes by Northlands

The work is now well underway and includes:

  • installing a full-time northbound bus lane from Winston Avenue to Sawyers Arms Road
  • extending the hours of the southbound bus lane
  • installing traffic lights at the Grassmere Street intersection
  • making layout changes at the Northlands entrance on Main North Road

The work is happening mostly at night to minimise the disruption to businesses in the area. All lanes and access ways will remain open during the road works. Have a look at the latest update for more information. [PDF, 2.3 MB]

We consulted on this project towards the end of 2017 and Councillors decided to proceed with a slightly amended design in October 2018.  Read more about the consultation(external link) or have a look at the plans [, 614 KB].
