People can see it at VisAbility in Victoria Park until August 22.

It aims to give people with visual and mobility impairments an understanding of how the busport will work and enable them to provide the Public Transport Authority with feedback.

‘The model provides the community with a physical concept of what the new underground busport might look like,’ PTA spokesman David Hynes said.

‘It was built with our vision-impaired passengers in mind and comes complete with tactile markings and braille labels.’

The model was at the Disability Services Commission and after VisAbility it will be taken to the Malaga, O’Connor and Swan depots to familiarise bus drivers.

The $209 million busport is the second stage of the Perth City Link project and is scheduled to be finished by mid-2016.
