Bus Corridors Announced – D2 & 4Posted March 1st, 2019
The Core Bus Corridor (phase 3) plan was published this week; the project aims to deliver 230kms of dedicated bus lanes and 200kms of cycle tracks along 16 of the busiest corridors in Dublin to provide a faster, safer & more efficient transport network. Phase 3 affects Merrion, Donnybrook, Ballsbridge, Ringsend, & the City Centre – and other areas indirectly.
Significant traffic changes are being proposed – new & altered cycle routes, different access to roads, removal of off-street parking etc.
A public consultation is open and will end on 30th April. I would advise taking a look at the detailed proposals for your area & regular transport routes to see how they may change. Consider the best options for the future of local traffic and give your feedback – here. Dates for information events and community forums will be set next week, I will post them as soon as they are available.
Some compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) will be used to acquire lands – in this case some businesses and parts of gardens will be affected; no homes will be acquired. Those who may be affected by CPOs will have already received a letter with the contact details of a liaison in the National Transport Authority.
See below a link to all of the information I have shared on phase 2, which followed the same process.

On Monday a community forum was established for bus corridor #10 (Tallaght to Terenure). A representative from my office attended to hear people’s concerns and feedback. To see some issues that have been raised, responses that the National Transport Authority have given and the best ways to engage in the process, go here. Details of upcoming public information evenings are here.
