The Shelter

The Design

The smart shelters have been designed by international architects Grimshaw with residents’ safety and wellbeing at the heart. Shelters will feature cameras, LED edge lighting, voice announcements and accessibility improvements for people with disabilities.

The Technology

Every new shelter will have a digital bus countdown screen and local travel information.

Free public Wi-Fi is installed at every shelter.

Each bus shelter will contain state-of-the-art technology including air quality, traffic, and noise sensors as well as CCTV for safety and security purposes. Digital panels will be able to display emergency messages with individual locations displaying messages relevant to the specific area.
