ADG undertook a thorough due diligence assessment of the reference design.

By undertaking a thorough due diligence assessment of the reference design, ADG were able to identify significantly more areas of noncompliance and incorporated these into the detailed design documentation.

Holland Park – Park’n’Ride – DDA Compliance Upgrade

CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL / Government

Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

ADG identified the following resulting in significant time and cost savings for the project:

  • A significantly simpler design for the Kiss n Ride facility to achieve the project objectives
  • That the bus shelter and seating are in fact heritage listed and therefore are not to be altered in any way
  • Futureproofed the design of the removal and replacement of the existing stairs so that they can be easily retrofitted to achieve DDA compliance from Miriam Street if deemed required
  • A significantly simpler connection configuration between the Kiss n Ride and the bus stop utilising most of the existing infrastructure removing the requirement for any demolition
  • Although identified as impractical based on the existing tie in level constraints and the “untouchable” heritage listed bus shelter and seat, ADG identified that by introducing a kerb ramp at either end of the bus shelter, this would enable the level difference to be lost in the transition and remove the DDA non-compliance of the bus stop platform without introducing further hazards to the facility or impacting the heritage listed infrastructure in any way.

Incorporated an unmarked clear zone to accommodate egress from rear doors of bus into the design.
