The long-awaited Kilbirnie bus hub will be open for operations in its permanent location on Evans Bay Parade from 6.00am on Sunday 18 November.
Civil works associated with the Kilbirnie stormwater renewal project had made the route impassable for bus services at key times.
The stormwater upgrade has now progressed to a stage where Metlink bus services are able to operate through the permanent Evans Bay Parade hub, with three stops – A, B and C – as shown in the map below.
The opening of the permanent hub means that the temporary bus hub on Rongotai Road, adjacent to Pak’ N’ Save, will be closed.
The temporary bus stop on Coutts Street outside Rita Angus Retirement Village will also be removed and Stop #6327 on Onepu Road will be reopened.
