PTA 2017-2018 Annual Report

The report is available in both its full 164-page form, or an 83-page interactive.

A few points of interest for me include*:
- "Riverside Drive" bus lanes (these are described as being for Mounts Bay Road to improve journey times for the 950, and services utilising Stirling Hwy), whose design is now 85% complete. Out of sheer curiosity, I did a Google search and turned up a document for public comment from 2009 regarding priority measures closer to Elizabeth Quay by the Mount Hospital, which included bus-lanes, traffic signal priority and island platforms for passengers.
- Development of a traffic signal priority system to assist with late-running buses.
- Construction of Henley-Brook Bus Station (not sure of the date on this Interim Network Map, but it gives us some clues as to the bus network that will result).

* Rather than attempt to summarise the whole document, it seemed more appropriate to include some points of personal interest. Others are welcome to do the same
