Woden Bus Depot

Project description

Work to recommission the Woden bus depot at Phillip is progressing following utility relocations in recent months and we are now preparing for the submission of a development application (DA) for the works. The depot on the corner of Athllon Drive and Parramatta Street was decommissioned in the mid-1990s as there was sufficient capacity at the Belconnen and Tuggeranong depots at the time. Recent growth in the ACT however now warrants recommissioning of the site for the growing Transport Canberra bus fleet.

The new depot will improve the efficiency and reliability of the Transport Canberra bus service as buses can be garaged closer to the areas they service, creating less out of service running and a more responsive and flexible operation.

This project will deliver:

We will also be ensuring the site is future proofed for the introduction of new transport technology with the necessary underground elements to be constructed now.
