A KBL Bus has gone up in smoke.

Children have been evacuated from a burning school bus north of Brisbane.
Emergency services were called to the fire on the Redcliffe Peninsula's major arterial road about 8am but there were no reports of injuries.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said a crew arrived about 10 minutes later and had the fire under control but not extinguished.
Kangaroo Bus Lines managing director Daryl Webster said the fire appeared to have started in the engine bay and the company would investigate what went wrong.
"The kids are all off the bus and safe, which is the main thing but other than that I have no details of what may or may not have caused it. I'm not too sure," he said.
"They've already been transported as far as I know onto another bus and to school.

"The driver used both the fire extinguishers in the bus to try and put it out but unfortunately he run out of powder before he could really get it out."
Mr Webster said the bus was relatively new, from 2008, and was believed to be taking kids to various schools on the Redcliffe Peninsula.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said there were children on board the bus but they were not injured.
Neither Mr Webster nor the QAS spokeswoman knew how many passengers were on board when the bus caught fire on Anzac Avenue eastbound at Rothwell, near Wattle Road.

Have your say for Proposed changes for Gold Coast for opening of Stage 2 extension is due to open in early 2018.

https://haveyoursay.translink.com.au/go ... p#tool_tab

TX1 and 2 and 3 will be no longer, also 720 will replace to TX7, also 709 will be no more, G:link tram will take it to Helensvale and catch new TX7.

713 and 719 and 765 will be more frequency to 15 mins each weekday and 15 mins weekend only for 765, 20 mins for 713 and 719.

705 will be run on old burleigh road instead of Surf parade due of lots of events, then turns into Elizabeth Ave then to Victoria ave then run in the same way.

I think most of it makes sense but not sure about withdrawing TX1 as that will surely significantly increase travel time between the lower GC and theme parks.
