The new sky-blue & White bus stops?

Post by Newcastle Flyer »

1) What's with the "half-height" bus stops such as this one instead of the full height ones of the same design?:

2) Was their really a need to change them instead of just adding the extra information box?

3) I noticed that most new signs are a rectangle, and some new signs are just the round top J-pole signs in the new sky-blue and white colour.

These are for places where there isn't enough space for a full height one. For example, they have some at Rockdale station because there is a low awning over it.

Ditto at Everton Road next to Strathfield Station.

Yet they had full height ones before they changed them.

They look like a magnet for vandalism.
Global w̶a̶r̶m̶i̶n̶g̶ hoax.
With the left in charge the future is doomed.
So sick of transit hobbyist's superior attitudes.
NSW will never reach the level of greatness under Wran ever again.
