Johnston Street bus lane study

This study investigated the exclusive bus lane implemented in johnston street, collingwood (Melbourne). An examination was made of the benefits and losses to all traffic resulting from the provision of the bus lane. The implementation of the bus lane appears to be greatly improving the service which can be provided by buses during the peak periods without causing any detriment to the other peak direction traffic. The counter peak traffic has been disadvantaged, but this was not found to be too severe during the morning peak period. It is therefore concluded that the bus lane was of benefit to travellers during the morning peak and should be retained. Due to its poor performance during the afternoon, and the effect on abutting businesses, it is concluded that the bus lane should be abandoned for that period.
