Ireland’s National Transport Authority ( NTA) has invited the public to have its say on the second phase of the Core Bus Corridor project.

The project, part of the BusConnects programme, aims to transform Dublin’s bus network by providing 230km of bus lanes and 200km of cycle lanes on 16 of the busiest corridors in and out of the city centre.

With the region’s population set to grow by 25% by 2040 to almost 1.55m, the project is seen as ‘fundamental’ to tackling congestion.

The first phase of the public consultations commenced in November 2018 and is ongoing.

The latest public consultation for phase two began on 23 January on the Emerging Preferred Routes for the following six corridors:

  • Liffey Valley to the City Centre;
  • Clondalkin to Drimnagh;
  • Greenhills to the City Centre;
  • Tallaght to Terenure;
  • Kimmage to the City Centre; and
  • Rathfarnham to the City Centre.
  • Phase three of the project will get underway in mid-February and will run until the end of April featuring the final six corridors:
  • Ballymun to the City Centre;
  • Finglas to Phibsborough;
  • Bray to the City Centre;
  • Blackrock to Merrion;
  • UCD Ballsbridge to City Centre; &
  • Ringsend to the City Centre.
