As the new school year gets underway, Bass Coast Shire Council is pleased to be able to start the construction of two new school bus stops in Inverloch.

One is to be installed in Ullathornes Road, to the south of the Ullathornes Road and Nesci Court intersection. The other is in Wonthaggi Road, opposite the Capeview Mitre10 store.

“In both cases these are established school bus pick up and drop off points, but where there has been no shelter in the past,” Council’s Acting Infrastructure Director, Jamie Sutherland, said.

“The Ullathornes Road shelter will keep about 12 Wonthaggi Secondary College students out of the rain. Putting the drain to the front of the stop underground will also make getting on and off the bus a much drier and safer experience for the kids.

“The Wonthaggi Road stop will service about 20 Newhaven College and about 10 Wonthaggi Secondary College children. Council will also construct a 17-metre footpath to connect the bus stop to the closest car parking area.”
