Since the Watt & Scott Sts "works" are finished, why are the buses only going to & from Newcastle Station/Customs House, instead of Queens Wharf?

I know that, but the Watt & Scott Sts intersection has been re-opened & other buses including Keolis Downer buses are using the Wharf Rd & Watt St Roundabout & via Whard Rd where Queens Wharf is, so I'm still wondering why the 11, 13 & 14 buses need to start/terminate at Newcastle Station/Customs House.

Yellow painted lines in kerbs in front of bus stops?

Postby Newcastle Flyer » Fri Jun 15, 2018 8:58 am

Would anyone know why the yellow lines have been painted on the kerbs in front of some bus stops?

Some councils put these markings down so contractors know where to erect the signs.

NO QUOTING WHOLE POST PLEASE - especailly when it's the previous post.

Re not going to/from Queens Wharf in my posts above: I'm wondering if their has a been a complaint about buses going around Centenary St/Av to return & are now prevented going to/from Queens Wharf, as the Watt & Scott Sts "works" intersection has finished. We'll see on Monday.
Simlar to why only two bus routes only ended up on the previous network going to Newcastle East.
