Northern Busway Opens
The latest section of the Northern Busway is now open, linking the RBWH Station to Kedron. Dedicated on-road bus lanes and 1.5km of tunnels make up the new stretch of road that will eventually connect the Brisbane CBD to Bracken Ridge, approximately 15km north of the city.
Bligh Tanner brought specialist transit structure experience to the project as sub-consultant to the Parsons Brinckerhoff Arup consortium. Responsibilities included structural engineering design of the stations at Kedron and Lutwyche for which Cottee Parker were the project architects and landscape structures with Tract Consultants.
This project extends our experience with Brisbane’s Busway which began at concept design stage in 1997. Most recently we have upgraded the generic design manual which controls the design of standard station elements.
