Ballinas Bus Interchange Set For Upgrade


Ballina Shire Council will be upgrading the Tamar Street Bus Interchange in Ballina’s CBD from Monday 11 March 2024.

Council has secured $1.3 million in funding from the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure fund for the upgrade, which will see the aging bus shelter demolished and a new structure constructed. The new design aims to improve traffic flow within the interchange and increase passenger comfort and accessibility.

The project will include:

  • Two bays for buses to pick up and drop off passengers with improved bus entry into the interchange
  • New separate taxi zone with the existing zone being incorporated into the bus stop
  • Improved stormwater drainage
  • Widened walkways for pedestrian safety and accessibility.

What to expect

During construction, a temporary bus and taxi zone will be located nearby in Tamar Street at the front of 76 Tamar Street (Barker Ryan Stewart).

The entry to the Wigmore Arcade and carpark will remain open throughout the project, however due to the construction zone, there will be a temporary reduction in available parking spaces within the carpark area.

The works are expected to be completed by the end of June 2024.
