Bus shelters get an upgrade

Published: 29 May 2020 2:44pm

Bus shelters in Wagga Wagga and Uranquinty have been spruced up with some paint and polish as part of a Wagga City Council upgrade program.

The program is allocated $20,000 every two years to ensure bus shelters are kept in good shape for the community’s use.

Director Commercial Operations Caroline Angel said the facilities were important for community members utilising public transport.

“They’re a small, but very important part of community life,” Ms Angel said.

“When it’s hot or raining, a bus shelter is an important refuge for people, young and elderly. Council is able to keep the shelters in good order through this program.

“The upgrade promotes their long term use and ensures a benefit to the community for the years ahead.”

Work on three shelters in Wagga Wagga and Uranquinty were completed in mid-May. These included shelters in Tobruk Street, Kimba Drive, and O’Connor Street, Uranquinty.

The shelters were repainted, had rust removed and new perspex panels installed.
