The stop on Bunya Rd (“Bunya Rd far side South Pine Rd”) will not be serviced, however passengers can still alight at the “South Pine/Plucks Rd” stop which is only 281 metres back around the corner on South Pine Rd.

  • Other changes are adjustments to running time to better reflect actual on road conditions.

Other routes pass the school as well, but unless they are in the aforementioned routes, at this stage they are remaining unchanged or are controlled by other regions and the relevant planners will be forwarding any changes in the near future or have already forwarded details of any other changes.
