Any residents of Caboolture real estate interested in the development of public transport in the local community will be interested to hear about 31 bus stop upgrades expected to be disseminated across the Moreton Bay region during 2015.
The initiative is expected to cost $803,000 and will see the quality of public transport in the region increase. Acting mayor councillor Mike Charlton said there will also be 21 new bus shelters installed over this period, alongside various infrastructure upgrades and signage installations.
"The $803,000 investment in shelters, signage and tactile upgrades is expected to make public transport safer and more accessible for commuters and residents with a visual impairment. Easier-to-use public transport means less traffic congestion on our roads and a more sustainable environment for future generation," said Mr Carlton in a 21 November statement.
With these developments occurring, now could be a great time to begin considering your own efforts for the sustainability effort. There are a number of commuting options available to the residents of Moreton Bay that don't require the use of a private vehicle, which cuts down on the amount of pollution in the atmosphere.
These are just things to consider as the region continues to develop and grow heading into 2015.
