Commuters want shade and protection
BLACKTOWN City Council has built five new bus shelters, with another five completed in the next six months, to keep up with demand from commuters wanting shade and protection from all weather conditions.
They are located at: 
Richmond Road, Quakers Hill (opposite Alford Street).
Richmond Road, Dean Park (to the rear of Kenneth Crescent).
Riverbank Drive, The Ponds.
Lucretia Road, Seven Hills.
Pully Drive, Ropes Crossing (works in progress).
Sentry Drive, Stanhope Gardens.
James Cook Drive, Kings Langley.
Huntingwood Drive, Huntingwood
Wilson Road, Acacia Gardens.
Carlisle Avenue, Mount Druitt
Blacktown City Council said it is “looking after the health and safety of its community by installing 10 new bus shelters to provide shade and protection from the sun and harsh weather.”
The shelters include seating, cover from the elements and tactiles for people with visual impairments.
Council received funding for five of the bus shelters through the federal government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure (LRCI) Program. 
Providing local bus shelters are among the responsibilities of councils as a local government, in addition to maintaining and improving public infrastructure.
The funding and provision of the bus shelters were negotiated by the council during the term of the late mayor, Tony Bleasdale OAM.
Council said the shelters were guided by feedback from community consultations.
Blacktown is among council areas in Western Sydney that submitted its current and future transport infrastructure needs in last year’s NSW Parliamentary Inquiry.
As the city’s population constantly grows, Council said in its funding submission that they needed to “meet financial demands on providing basic infrastructure and services.”
