This bus shelter is complete!

Thank you to the community for your patience and understanding during construction.


Increasing public transport movement through constructing new and upgrading existing bus shelters is one of the ways we’re building a better Manningham.

As part of our bus stop upgrade program, we’re upgrading the bus shelter at 533 Blackburn Road, Templestowe to improve accessibility and safety.


Where is it?

We will construct the new bus shelter at 533 Blackburn Road, Templestowe.

Why is the bus shelter needed?

To comply with the Department of Public Transport (DPT) requirements and improve accessibility and safety for public transport users.


When will the works happen?

The project will commence in April 2023 and is expected to take 2 months. The project will be delivered in two phases with a period of one month in between phases for drying time.

Phase 1 - Civil works

These works will include new concreting, path connections and the shelter footings. Expected timeframe is one week, during which time the stop will be closed.

Phase 2 - Shelter installation

Delivery and construction of the shelter. Expected timeframe is two days, during which time the stop will be closed.

If delays occur due to poor weather or unexpected events, we will let you know.


How will the works affect me?

Once works begin, you will not be able to use this bus stop until the civil works are complete.

We will notify commuters about the disruption via on-site signage.

Thank you for your patience while we plan and undertake these important works.
