Working Closely with DDA Standards

The Disability Discrimination Act is critical legislation in Australia that addresses various discriminations against people with disabilities. These standards work on the grounds of eliminating discrimination ‘as far as possible.’

When it comes to bus stop construction, we focus on the Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (DSAPT) guidelines. Some essential guidelines that we consider while constructing a bus stop are:

Widths

To meet AS 1428.1 (2009), we keep the minimum footpath width to 1800 mm as it can accommodate two wheelchair passengers to pass.

Turning or Circulation Spaces

  • To allow a wheelchair user to take a 90° turn, we keep the circulation space at least 1500 mm x 1500 mm.
  • To ensure a wheelchair user turns between 90° to 180°, we keep the circulation space at least 1540 mm x 2070 mm.

Gradients

To meet AS 1428.1 (2009), we keep the maximum gradient for accessible paths, i.e. 1:14. We also take care of the level landings by taking the following maximum intervals:

  • For gradients that are shallower than 1:33, no landings are needed.
  • For gradients of 1:33, no max than 25mm intervals
  • For gradients of 1:20, no max than 15mm intervals
  • For gradients of 1:14, no max than 9mm intervals

Crossfall

We meet the Crossfall criteria by keeping the path not steeper than 1:40

Ground Surfaces

To ensure the bus stop is accurate as per the DDA standards, we opt for slip-resistance surfaces like

  • Asphalt
  • Rough finish natural stone
  • Concrete with an abrasive finish
  • Paving bricks with an abrasive finish

Ramps

To fully meet AS1428.1 (2009), we follow the below criteria:

  • We keep the maximum gradient of 1:14
  • Level landings of 1:40/1:33
  • Handrails not less than 300mm

We offer our bus stop construction services to government authorities, public transportation players and private construction companies. We make use of structural aluminium or steel for constructing the structure. So be it rectification of concrete handstand, footpaths, tactile, Kerb & Channel, shelters or signages, we’ve got you covered. 

Bus passenger shelter requirements:

  • To provide a continuous accessible path of travel, the minimum width on each side of the shelter should be 1200 mm. 
  • If the shelter also has an advertising pane (that’s usually 1500 mm wide), a minimum roadside width of .9 metres is required.
  • If the end panels are 800 mm, then the minimum roadside width can be reduced to 0.2 metres.

Other street furniture

The street furniture can cover a wide range of accessories like seats in lieu of bus passenger shelters, rubbish bins, and real-time information signs. If a bus stop has any of the street furniture, then there is a need for a 1200 mm continuous accessible path of travel.

In addition, the street furniture should be kept behind from the kerb by at least  500 mm to allow for bus overhangs. This DDA arrangement makes the overall commute easier.

Bus stop kerbing

The kerb should be a 150 mm higher barrier kerb according to the VicRoads Standard Design Drawing SD 2001. This type of kerb offers excellent guidance to the bus driver and also offers protection to waiting passengers. This is an ideal height to meet the criteria of Disability Standards for Accessible Public Transport (2002). 

In addition, if the kerb is not present then consideration must be provided to otherwise achieve the minimum necessary gradient for ramps deployed from the bus.

Defining an ideal bus stopping area:

According to the law statement — “A driver (except the driver of a public bus) must not stop at a bus stop, or on the road, within 20 metres before a sign, and within 10 metres after the sign, unless the driver stops at a place on a length of the road, or in an area, to which a parking control sign applies and the driver is permitted to stop at that place under the Road Rules”

In addition, pavement markings are ideal to install to support the Bus Zone signs. However, these pavements do not have regulatory significance as of now.
