Queen Street Bus Station QLD, Australia (2018)

More than 40 Sensation Orange Concourse Seats, the majority wall-mounted and some with legs, have been installed at Queen Street Bus Station as part of a $3 million makeover in time for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

“The Queen Street Bus Station is 29 years old, and in need of an upgrade to make it a better, brighter and more comfortable place for passengers and staff,” says TransLink.

“The upgrade will provide an improved station environment with a modern, brighter design, and upgraded features for people with a disability.”

The refurbishment is the station’s first since its opening in 1989, and includes new ceiling, floor and wall tiles and wall panels, as well as the colourful two and three-seater Concourse Seats.

The transformation aims to please Games travellers as well as the 80,000 passengers who use the station each week.

Contractor James Trowse Constructions has also upgraded handrails and lighting to ensure the station meets disability compliance.

Additionally, each DDA-compliant Concourse unit features armrests to help sit and stand up from the seat.

Albury Railway Station

A loving heritage restoration sees this historic building furnished with brand new Termini Seats. Albury Railway Station first opened in 1882, when it was seen as a turning point towards Australian Federation as it was the first large transit stop to be built on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. The two states still used different gauge train tracks, so the longest undercover platform in the southern hemisphere (at the time) was built at Albury, to allow passengers to transition between lines. The Australian National Heritage List reports, “The connection of the New South Wales and Victorian railway systems at Albury-Wodonga gave a dramatic boost to the cause of Federation. “The connection was a long-heralded and much-vaunted engineering achievement, which was crowned with the architectural triumph of Albury Railway Station Building.” More than 130 years on, the grand, symmetrical Victorian Italianate building …

Barangaroo Ferry Wharf

Ferry travellers can now alight on the doorstep of the Barangaroo parklands, shopping and eating precinct, commercial office towers and apartments, with the opening of a contemporary wharf. Cox Architecture says the passenger interface was the primary focus for the design team, who crafted the Ferry Hub to provide “a seamless and sculptural environment with weather protection, superb views of Sydney harbour and efficient, functional passenger flows in a safe and secure context.” The aesthetic aims to reflect “the maritime qualities of Sydney and its iconic harbour,” says the architect.

TransLink Northern Busway

TransLink’s $444m Northern Busway project saw new stations connect Brisbane’s northern suburbs to Brisbane City, shopping centres and workplaces.

In its first year TransLink says the network supported more than 9.7 million trips. By 2016 the busway should cater for 47,000 public transport trips per day,“more than five times the current number,” says BrisConnections CEO Dr Ray Wilson. Cottee Parker Architects specified a suite of Street Furniture Australia products to furnish the new station. Classic Galleria benches and seats, in aluminium finish, feature in the bus terminals and outdoor areas, alongside Arqua drinking fountains, Wide bollards and Plato bins.
