Background

The State Transit Authority (STA) has requested the extension of the existing Bus Zone in Baptist Street, Redfern to facilitate the operation of higher capacity articulated buses stopping at the existing bus stop.

The extension is required as part of a State Government proposal to provide improved public transport services through the area. The proposal includes the removal of the existing bus stop on Baptist Street just north of Telopea Street.
