A further public consultation on the new BusConnects corridors across the Greater Dublin Area will take place in September.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has been forced to postpone its public information events.

“Due to the current Covid-19 emergency and the unprecedented times we are living in, the NTA has decided that there will be a further public consultation regarding the core bus corridor projects later this year.

“We hope to carry out the additional public consultation in September, however this will be dependent on current HSE restrictions being lifted and in line with any HSE guidelines which may remain in place later this year,” it said.

However, it is accepting submissions from the public in relation to the issues surrounding the project.

There were a total of 13,000 submissions during the first round of public consultation on plans for 16 bus corridors and cycle tracks which the NTA has said are required for the increasing population and congestion in the capital.

Following a series of group and one-on-one meetings, the NTA unveiled new plans to go for a second round of public consultations. The new plans will see fewer householders losing their front gardens and fewer trees being felled.

Submissions can be emailed to cbc@busconnects.ie or by post to the NTA until April 17.
