New Bus Connects Proposals - Public Meeting This Saturday

The following has been notified to us by Councillor Anne Feeney


PUBLIC MEETING 

New Bus Corridors Proposal 
How will this affect You? 

Saturday 2nd February 2019 (11.30am – 1pm) 
St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, Beechlawn Way, Terenure. 

This week the National Transport Authority (NTA) announced Phase 2 of the Bus Corridor Project. Councillor Anne Feeney is hosting a Public Meeting to give people an opportunity to hear a short presentation on the proposals and to discuss the impact for our area.

Rathfarnham to City Centre 
Tallaght to Terenure 
Kimmage to City Centre 

Many residents are extremely concerned about these proposals, particularly the restrictions to cars on the main thoroughfares to the city and the consequent likelihood of many local residential roads being turned into “rat-runs” by the traffic diverted from main roads. There are also concerns about the extensive property compulsory purchase orders (CPOs) on roads such as Lower Kimmage Road, Terenure Road East, Rathgar Road and Rathfarnham Road.

Information on the Bus Corridors and the NTA’s consultation process can now be viewed on www.busconnects.ie.

(Please note the early start time which will allow us to finish up well before the big match at 4.45pm)
