The proposed civic plaza at College Green, Dublin 2
Olivia Kelly, in The Irish Times, reports:
Dublin Bus wants to keep running buses through College Green in defiance of Dublin City Council’s plans to develop the area as a pedestrian- and cyclist-only plaza.
The bus company, which previously publicly supported the council’s plans for a new €10 million civic plaza, wants An Bord Pleanála to stop the council from banning buses from crossing College Green, and to hold a public oral hearing on the scheme.
Among the 24 routes are the 185, which connects Bray with Newtownmountkennedy, the 76a, which connects Blanchardstown and Tallaght shopping centres, and the 220, which travels from Ballymun to Mulhuddart….
Dublin Bus celebrated its 30th anniversary today with their longest serving employees reading favorite stories, including the lost missing table tennis bats (video above), which have been gathered into a giant Dublin Bus Legends Story Book chronicled since setting out 1987.
