New bus stops delivered in response to community feedback

Long awaited works on a new pair of bus stops on the popular 622 Route on Ridges Boulevard are now complete.

Ninderry MP Dan Purdie said community feedback had been instrumental in helping deliver the new bus stops, after residents raised the issue with him last year.

“More than 12 months ago locals had contacted me about the lack of bus stops on the 622 route, noting distance between the current stops on Peregian Springs Drive and Ridgeview Drive,” Mr Purdie said.

“After raising this issue with Translink, and lobbying on behalf of the growing Peregian Springs community, I was pleased to see them announce late last year that a new set of stops for Ridges Boulevard, located adjacent to the Peregian Springs State School, would be installed.”

Mr Purdie said while Council had completed most of the works at the end of January, he had been told by Translink there had been issues around the supply of signage, which had delayed the new stop coming into service.

“Many local residents rely on an efficient and accessible public transport system, and while there is a still a lot more work to be done to provide effective coverage across our region, it is good to see local residents benefit from an additional bus stop on this route, which connects locals to Maroochydore and Noosa Junction.”
