230 and 232 bus detour
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August

As a result of these traffic changes, 230 and 232 buses will detour from first services on Saturday 8 August until last service on Sunday 9 August via Torrens Road, Days Road and Regency Road.

During this detour, passengers can use existing and temporary bus stops along Torrens Road, Days Road and Regency Road.

Would be good if they could put some signs up at the stops to tell passengers that their stops will be removed. Just over a week to go and nothing yet along Harrison Rd.

I went to a R2P info session last year so have been aware of what was planned but expect many people would have only become aware of what was happening when the proposed network changes were released.

As a local resident I think the communication about works related to both the R2P and T2T projects over the past 4 or 5 years has been excellent, information about this change seems to have been quite limited.

Weren't these changes meant to happen when those huge changes that were cancelled by the Marshall Government? Oh well better earlier than never and makes some sense.

This is simply because Pym Street will no longer cross South Road, permanently. Nothing to do with Knoll’s cancelled plans: that would’ve seen the 232 (Newcastle St and the northern end of Torrens Rd at Rosewater) disappear completely.

Why not get rid of the 230-232 Go Zone and split the routes, so the buses can still service Harrison Rd and Days Rd.

One route goes Harrison Rd, r Pym St, l Churchill Rd and l Regency Rd

The other goes r Days Rd, l Regency Rd.

The route along South Rd, while a smart idea, seems to be isolating many passengers.

Even (1) r Days Rd, l Regency Rd
(2) r South Rd, l Regency Rd
as the 2 routes (230 and 232) would be better than the current arrangement, but does destroy the GoZone.
But then Port Rd still has red bus stops and GoZone timetable display boxes (those that are left) even though Port Rd hasn’t been anywhere near a GoZone for 2 years or so.
