Bus Hub Infrastructure Works

Friday 5 January 2024

Update 11 January 2024: Bus Stop C will be closed and all other stops will be open.

This means:

  • Routes 3, 50 and 61 will be redirected to Stop B
  • Route 33 will be redirected to Stop D

Thanks to the construction team working on the new Pacific Radiology building for helping us to make this change.

The friendly traffic management people will be able to help you if you need help finding your bus stop.

The area is still closed to all traffic except buses.

We will continue to update information as work progresses. 


Update 9 January 2024: The Bus Hub is closed to general traffic throughout the construction period. During this period access to the Bus Hub will be restricted to Police vehicles and public transport only.


From 8 January, bus passengers are being advised to check their bus stop at the Bus Hub in central Dunedin.

ORC’s Manager Transport, Lorraine Cheyne says temporary traffic management will be in place while underground services are laid to the new radiology building.  The works require temporary changes to some bus stops over 4 weeks in January.

Affected bus stops will move backwards or forwards on the same side of the road during the construction work. Bus stop changes affect bus routes: 3, 8, 14, 18, 33, 38, 44, 50, 55, 61 at various times of the day throughout the month.

“Information about where to find your new stop will be available at the Bus Hub,” says Ms Cheyne.

"We’ll minimise the inconvenience for our passengers as much as possible."

The construction work will take place in two stages starting on 8 January with works being completed by 1 February.

At certain periods during construction, access to the Bus Hub will be restricted to public transport only - general traffic will not be able to enter the Bus Hub at these times.
