Guidelines for Bus Stops in Concrete in the Netherlands

Paper by JURRIAANS KRAMER from ISCR 12th 2014 Prague Czech Republic

New legislation for improving accessibility to buses by people and especially disabled people led to the modification of bus platforms and particularly the kerbs at these platforms. Buses should be able to approach quite close to these platforms. This depends on the design of the bus stop area. The dimensions of the bus stop must match the length of the different type of buses and the line in which the bus approaches the platform. Based on these requirements bus stops have been designed with concrete pavements. Solutions in doweled concrete, reinforced concrete and fibremix concrete have been designed. This includes details such as joints, sealing products, water evacuation, surface characteristics and connections to other types of pavements.
