National Transport Authority CEO Anne Graham (top) launching a discussion document on the BusConnects Dublin – Core Bus Corridors Project to “improve bus journey times and cycling priority along 16 radial core bus corridors”.
The proposals include
230kms of continuous bus priority over 16 radial core bus corridors;
200kms of cycle tracks and cycle lanes provided on the corridors segregated from the bus lanes and general traffic lanes “as far as is practicable”;
Journey time savings of up to 40%-50% across the 16 radial core bus corridors
“On each of the Core Bus corridors, we will provide high-quality cycling facilities, segregated from the bus lanes and general traffic lanes as far as is practicable.”
A full public consultation on the 16 identified corridors will be undertaken in October, which will have all the detailed impacts of the project on a road-by-road basis.
