Bus stop 70 Darwin City – returning to Cavenagh Street

From Monday 28 September, outbound public buses and Smith Street bus stops are moving back to Cavenagh Street.

From this date the new timetable and route changes will be effective.

The Cavenagh Street bus stop was temporarily moved to Smith Street during the construction of Garramilla Boulevard.

As part of this relocation, the Northern Territory’s first ‘B’ light will be installed on the Cavenagh Street and Garramilla Boulevard intersection traffic lights for a safer and smoother traffic flow.

Two new electronic timetables will also be installed at the Cavenagh Street bus stop, providing interactive and real time information for passengers.


Works are currently underway and will be completed by 28 September.

Traffic management will be in place during construction and all efforts will be made to minimise disruption where possible.

The bus stop on Smith Street will continue to be used until works on Cavenagh Street are complete.

All outbound Smith Street bus stops will be decommissioned and reinstated back to normal traffic conditions.

Timetable and route changes

From 28 September, the new bus route will exit the city via Cavenagh Street, not from Smith Street.

Buses will enter the city via Daly and Mitchell Streets, travel through to the interchange on Harry Chan Avenue, then exit the city via Cavenagh Street through Daly Street. Refer to the map below.

There will be minor changes to timetables across the wider Darwin and Palmerston network. School and urban bus services will stop at St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School bus stop.

‘B’ light road rules

The Territory’s first ‘B’ light will be installed at the Cavenagh Street and Garramilla Boulevard intersection near the new Cavenagh Street bus stop (Woolworths).

When the ‘B’ light turns white, and the red light is on, only buses can go. All other road users including cyclists must wait until the traffic lights change to green.

Australian Road Rules penalties apply. To find out more about road rules in the NT, go to the NT Government website.
