I now to discuss bus stop news that was provided to me today and that is the average cost for to construct a bus stop shelter is approximately $12,000 each. In Blacktown City Council Local Government Area as of 11/1/2011 - letter received from Mayor of Blacktown bus stop numbers total 1675. From this figure, 34 percent (565), of these are represented within Mount Druitt suburbs and 34 percent of these bus tops are sheltered (192). So one out three bus stops are sheltered - we will see whether this is correct.
We can now see that funding for bus stops is not cheap as it involved fixing curbs and footpaths, it is access-able to all commuters, not leaving it disadvantaged to anyone.
For further information have a look at NSW bus stop Infrastructure completed by WSCF:
