ACTION In Review (2011) Part 3-Diversions

Postby Bus 400 » Mon Dec 26, 2011 7:53 pm

During 2011 a few diversions were required for ACTION drivers to complete their job, here they are:

Image
On the 20th March 2011, Cohen Street was closed between Benjamin Way & Lathlain Street for the old red bridge to be brought down. This meant all Belconnen services had to go a different way.
Bus 403 (MAN 18.320) is seen turning left from Benjamin Way to Cohen Street/Belconnen Community Bus Station.

While not a big diversion as normal, buses on routes 39 & 939 were required to swing in between these bollards to continue normal running. These were in place to stop cars using this road while a roundabout was constructed.
Here we see Bus 366 (Scania L94UB) approaching these bollards.

While a speed bump was constructed on Madigan Street in Hackett, Routes 2, 936 & 937 were diverted around the back of Hackett Shops.
Bus 340 (Scania L94UB) is seen here turning left from Skeats Street on Madigan Street in Hackett.

Bus 313 (Irisbus Agoraline) is seen diverting around the back of Hackett Shops (same reason as above). This time turning left from Mills Street onto Maitland Street.

To facilitate the Canberra Times Fun Run (11th September 2011), any route that ran along Constitution Avenue or Yarra Glen/Adelaide Avenue (City bound only) were diverted to either through Parkes or along the Tuggeranong Parkway. Below are some photos:

Bus 378 (MAN 18.310) is seen looping around from Commonwealth Avenue onto London Circuit.

Bus 449 (MAN 18.320) is seen climbing up Commonwealth Avenue, City bound.

Bus 315 (Irisbus Agoraline) is seen turning left from Federation Mall onto Queen Victoria Terrace.

Bus 358 (Scania L94UB) is seen here diverting down Pinnacles Street in Harrison due to Nullabor Avenue being closed.

Part 2 of diversions will be posted in the 2012, once the London Circuit diversions are finished. Part 2 will also include the weekend Mitchell fire diversions.
