DART Route 906

We’re upgrading DART bus routes to improve their reliability and help you get to where you need to go sooner.

Background

DART bus services provide an easy and efficient travel option to and from the CBD if you live in the Doncaster area. 

Works have been completed in the following locations:

  • Blackburn Road between Canopus Drive and Bellevue Avenue
  • Doncaster Road between the Doncaster ‘Park and Ride’ facility and the Eastern Freeway entrance

Project update

Eastern Freeway

We’re upgrading Route 906 bus stops along the Eastern Freeway entry ramps at Middleborough Road and Blackburn Road to accommodate articulated (bendy) buses. 

These works include:

  • realigning freeway left turn slip lanes
  • improving bus stop infrastructure and traffic islands
  • better street lighting, signals and drainage. 

The slip lane closures and 24-hour works will occur:

  • Middleborough Road: 21 – 30 October 2018
  • Blackburn Road: 11 – 20 November 2018.

During works, the freeway entry ramps on Middleborough Road and Blackburn Road will remain open.

Disruptions

The slip lane closures and 24-hour works will occur:

  • Middleborough Road: 21 – 30 October 2018
  • Blackburn Road: 11 – 20 November 2018.

During works, the freeway entry ramps on Middleborough Road and Blackburn Road will remain open.

Work dates may change depending on weather conditions, however we’ll try our best to work to schedule.

Bus services will continue operating during works. Some bus stops may close temporarily, but we’ll notify you about any changes before works begin. 

We’ll also have a detour for pedestrians travelling through the area to ensure you’re a safe distance from the works. 

Temporary bus stop closures this weekend

The bus stop at Blackburn Road/Eastern Freeway will be temporarily closed from Friday 16 November 2018 9pm until  Monday 19 November 2018 5am. Visit the PTV website for more information.
