Bus Station Offers Public Relief From Heat

The public are invited to take refuge inside the air conditioned Adelaide Central Bus Station tonight, which will remain open for 24 hours due to the extreme heat.

An extreme heat warning has been issued by the State Emergency Service. The Bus Station at 85 Franklin Street will provide the community with a secure place to keep cool tonight.

Lord Mayor Martin Haese encourages all city residents and patrons to make use of public air conditioned buildings during these extreme hot weather days.

“The Adelaide Central Bus Station is a central location that will be open around-the-clock for local residents and visitors to take a break from the heat and cool down,” he said.

During extreme heat events such as those forecast this week, City of Adelaide’s Community Centres and Libraries ensure that fresh cool water and air conditioning is available during regular opening hours.

People are reminded to stay hydrated and cool, minimise sun exposure and seek medical advice if necessary.

Don’t forget your pets and check on your friends, family and neighbours, particularly the elderly, during extreme heat in case they need help.

Follow the City of Adelaide Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates regarding the bus station and other Council facilities throughout the extreme conditions.
