Dickson bus station

Project background

The Dickson bus station is currently under construction on the extension of Cape Street between Northbourne Avenue and Challis Street. The bus station will serve two-way bus traffic only, providing a hub for bus users and a transfer station for patrons when the Dickson light rail station is operational.

Scope of works

The Dickson bus station will include:

  • signalisation of the bus station Cape Street intersections with Northbourne Avenue (southbound carriageway only) and Challis Street
  • coordinated presentation with the planned Dickson light rail station including paving, landscaping and infrastructure
  • widening of the verge and relocation of traffic islands in the Cape Street/Badham Street intersection and associated protection and relocation of utilities and;
  • construction of 22 additional car parking spaces on Cape Street and on Challis Street.

Community consultation

Consultation for the project was held in conjunction with the planning consultation process for the light rail project.

Project funding

The ACT Government committed $4.25 million for the supervision and construction of this project.


Construction commenced in October 2016, and is anticipated to be completed by October 2017.

Traffic impacts

The bus station provides a bus only link to the road network. The entry and exit of buses will be controlled with signalised intersections, at both the intersections with Northbourne Avenue and Challis Street.
