THE FRONT (east side).
(Formerly listed as Bus Station and beach shelter)
Rendered brick and reinforced concrete, all painted, with flat reinforced concrete and asphalt roofs. Art Deco style; symmetrical plan. Central clock tower projects from adjoining single-storey utility building flanked by staircases and landings. This was formerly linked to a rectangular-plan shelter to the rear that was demolished circa 1993. Single-storey concave-plan passenger shelters, to left and right of clock tower, form a crescent facing The Front. The Clock tower is a simple square shaft on a panelled pedestal; each of the shaft sides has a single tall, round-headed panel with clock face above a large reeded corbel, the corners of the tower having additional detail in the form of simple, clasping, low-relief buttresses. The doorways to the utility building have flat surrounds. The staircases and decks of the utility block have steel geometric-pattern balustrades with end and intermediate fluted piers on moulded corbels. Passenger shelters are open-fronted with 4 circular shafts and responds and at their ends they have slightly projecting convex-plan pavilions. Deep eaves cornice and shallow parapet. Timber seating fixed to rear walls.
