First stage of Chadstone's $600m revamp completed

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 12:00 am By Admin

The new bus interchange that was under construction for the past few months has been unveiled today.

Originally slated for a 'Late 2015' opening, it was completed at the end of July 2015, ahead of schedule.

Centre Manager Anthony Rafaniello said the Centre needed to accommodate the demands of commuter-shoppers. He said "PTV thinks it will be the fifth busiest bus interchange in Victoria".

"But I think over time, more and more people will come by public transport. And it just makes [Chadstone] accessible from anywhere in Melbourne. The buses actually go as far as Altona, Box Hill. It just totally connects us."

Bus Interchange construction begins, carparking spaces reduced Mon, 16 Mar 2015 12:00 am By Admin

Sections of the Myer/Woolworths carpark have been fenced off as construction begins on a new bus interchange.

Chadstone Shopping has traditionally been served with bus stops outside the Coles entrance, however this has reached capacity, particularly at peak times. Delays are made worse by the pedestrian crossing between the Coles carpark and centre entrance. The new bus interchange will be a dedicated facility, unimpeded by pedestrian traffic.

The interchange is planned to open in 'Late 2015'.

Until then, above-ground carparking between Woolworths and Myer will be drastically reduced whilst construction takes place.

Confusing sign at Chadstone Sun, 01 Feb 2015 12:00 am By Admin

Is this the most confusing sign at Chadstone?

The sign is located next to Michell's Adventures. How is the sign interpreted? Are you more likely to find the 800 and 862 bus stops if you walk to the right, and the 802, 804 if you follow the path to the left? And what about 767 and 700 bus stops - which way do you turn?

The sign has been in this state for at least the past 12 months, and no remedial action has been taken to bring more clarity to commuters. The fix should be very simple - group the bus stops into either the left or right hand side.
