Lawnton Bus Services Secure with Proposed Routes

19/03/2013

State Member for Pine Rivers, Mr Seath Holswich, has welcomed clarification of proposed changes to bus routes in Pine Rivers, which show that bus services for Lawnton residents will be retained and improved under proposed changes.

Mr Holswich has been advised by Translink that the map originally displayed on the Translink website for Route 669 was incomplete.

"The updated map, which is now available, shows the overlay of the revised Route 674 service," Mr Holswich said.

"The new route for the 674 will see services around Slater Ave and Tulip St retained."

"With the revisions to both the 669 and 674, Lawnton residents will be well serviced with buses that connect to Lawnton and Bray Park Railway Stations, as well as Strathpine Westfield."

"The revised 669 and 674 routes will both link to Warner Village, giving even more convenient travel options for Lawnton and Bray Park residents."

The consultation period for the bus review has recently been extended by the Minister for Transport and Main Roads until Sunday 7th April.

"This is further evidence that we are serious about this consultation process," Mr Holswich added.

"The Minister has already announced several changes throughout the network based on the feedback received during this consultation period."

"We genuinely value the input of those who will be impacted by changes to the bus network."

Mr Holswich has uploaded full detailed maps of each of the Thompson Bus services in the Pine Rivers electorate on his website www.seathholswich.com under the "Local Issues" tab, including a combined map showing the total coverage of local services throughout the electorate.

Feedback on the proposed changes can be given online at www.translink.com.au until Sunday 7th April.
