The Otago Regional Councils -Dunedin Central City Public Transport Bus Hub / Interchange project in great King Street will change the way people use public transport in the Dunedin by providing a focused terminus and interchange within the heart of Dunedin’s CBD.
It will deliver 11 collocated bus stops to enable efficient bus service transfer and represent an improvement in the levels of service public transport customers receive. The works include civil works, electrical services, supply and installation of bus shelters and footpath canopies, roadmarking and signage and the supply and installation of traffic signals.
The Landscape and Urban Design for Great King Street will provide an enhanced space for people using the Bus Hub and the general public. The design provides feature paving, canopy structures, furniture and lighting which will contribute to an attractive and unified public realm. The pavement patterns will indicate movement areas and congregation zones across the widened footpath area. Vehicle crossings to adjacent carparks are rationalised and where possible have been lifted to the footpath level to slow traffic movement and emphasise the hierarchy of pedestrians in this space. Great King Street forms part of the Dunedin Central City Retail Precinct and is co-ordinated with the draft Central City design palette.
Overall the street will become a landmark street for Dunedin and a gateway to the city centre particularly for public transport users.
In developing this project, ORC has worked with the local stakeholders and businesses along Great King Street. Accordingly, a Construction Management Plan has been provided that outlines construction impact mitigation measures to be required to be followed during delivery of the works.
We look forward to receiving tenders and awarding the contract for this city changing, landmark project.
