Ocean Grove Market Place Diversion

From Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Unfortunately, the road works in Kingstown Downs Drive have reduced the length of the bus bay, so it is no longer possible to get the route 55 and route 56 buses at the one stop.
As this change does not make it safe to operate both services at the stop, we have now agreed with Dept of Transport to make the plan below permanent.
New bus stops have been installed in Shell Road just west of the Kingstown Downs Drive roundabout in both directions for Market Place, however the time points will remain near the school. These stops will be upgraded so they are DDA compliant.

Route 56 buses will need stay on Shell Road and not go into the shopping centre or Kingston Downs Drive. The closest bus stops to the shopping centre are now on Shell Rd on both sides of the road just west of the Kingston Downs Dr or out the front of Bellarine Secondary College instead (see green line on map below).

Route 55 buses will need stay on Shell Road and not go into the shopping centre or Kingston Downs Drive. The closest bus stops to the shopping centre are now on Shell Rd on both sides of the road just west of the Kingston Downs Dr or out the front of Bellarine Secondary College instead. Buses to Geelong will depart from the bus stop opposite Bellarine Secondary College in Shell Road (see pink line on map below).

School buses that pick up near the shopping centre will be able to continue to do so at the stop in Kingston Dr.

Thank you for your understanding.
