Replacement of Bus Shelter – Cullen Bullen

Council wishes to advise residents that in the coming weeks, works will commence on the replacement of a bus shelter in Cullen Bullen.

The bus shelter on the southbound side of the Castlereagh Highway at Cullen Bullen will be demolished and replaced. This work is being conducted to ensure that public assets in the Lithgow local government area are able to meet the needs of the community into the future.

Local bus services have been advised of this temporary change, however it is envisioned that the majority of the works will be carried out during the school holiday period to minimise disruption. The patience of the affected residents is appreciated.
