MUCH-needed alterations are being made to bus stops throughout Richlands in a bid to make bus travel safer and more appealing to residents.

The upgrades will be made to about 17 bus stops in the area as part of a program to make safety and amenity improvements in Richlands.

In most cases, bus stops will be enhanced to increase safety and access for locals with mobility difficulties.

Richlands councillor Milton Dick said new seating would also be installed.

"Which will be especially appreciated by elderly people, who use public transport to perhaps do their shopping or visit their doctors," he said.

Inala grandmother, Margaret Stone said she was pleased to see projects such as this undertaken in her community.

Ms Stone, who uses one of the recently refurbished bus stops on Inala's Balsa St, said the improvements were a boost for public transport users.

"The seats are definitely better to sit on and added features like lights make catching the bus at night safer," she said.

Cr Dick said residents would see construction work in Inala, Oxley, Wacol, Richlands, Darra and Durack with upgrades to be finished by the end of the year.
