Wallace Street is now planned to re-open fully to general traffic and bus services (routes 3, 18e, 27, 718, 726, 770) from Monday 6 July 2020.

Temporary bus stops (#0691 & #0791) will be closed from this date. 

Wallace Street (currently closed) bus stops will re-open again from Monday 6 July.


Check back on this page should the re-opening be delayed.

Services that would usually travel via Wallace Street will be diverted via Wright Street from 5 January until mid-2020. Please expect some delays and diversions to bus services in the area.

From 5 January, temporary bus stops will be installed on Wright Street which can be accessed from Wallace Street via a walkway.

To ease congestion in the area, Route 27 services will not be stopping at Hutchison Terminus. Route 27 will travel from Vogeltown along Hutchison Road directly onto Wright Street, bypassing the Hutchison Terminus, and vice versa. Please catch your Route 27 bus from Wright Street.

The school bus Route 770 afternoon service will be diverted via Adelaide Road, this is consistent with the existing Route 770 morning service.
