As you are aware, BusConnects is a major investment programme to improve public transport in Dublin. It aims to overhaul the current bus system through a 10 year integrated programme of integrated actions to deliver a more efficient, reliable and better bus system for more people. As part of this programme, the Core Bus Corridors project focuses on bus lanes and aims to deliver 230kms of dedicated bus lanes and 200kms of cycle tracks along 16 of the busiest corridors in Dublin.
The NTA wants to include all interested parties in the development of the Core Bus Corridors Project at all times. Therefore, in addition to the normal public consultation communications which will include public information events in January, we are also establishing a community forum for each corridor, beginning with Clongriffin, Swords, Lucan and Blanchardstown.
- Blanchardstown Community Forum will be held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel on Wednesday 12th December from 6.30pm-8.00pm.
Membership of each forum will comprise of a single representative from resident and community associations, disability and special interest groups as well as business organisations on the corridors along with public representatives.
As places are limited, only one representative per group or association can be accepted. We are now accepting requests to participate in the community forum where the name and contact details of the nominee as well as the name of their respective association can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. The name of the nominated representative must be sent to us by the close of business on Friday 7th December. Please be aware that places will be limited at the event so only registered attendees will be able to attend the forum on the night.
