Navan Road residents are probably aware that there is a proposal by the National Transport Authority (NTA) to upgrade the Bus Infrastructure in Dublin City and County. This is called the Core Bus Corridor Project and there are 16 route proposals. The one that concerns this area is the Blanchardstown to City Centre Core Bus Corridor 5 Project.
The Navan Road Community Council (NRCC)supports proposals that improve bus routes, infrastructure and better cycling and pedestrian facilities.
We are very concerned that the current proposal will destroy the quality of life of our area. While the proposal affects some Navan Road residents more directly, it will have implications for everyone. Therefore, we are appealing to all residents to send in their own submission.
We are attaching a letter indicating some of the points that you may wish to raise in your submission. However, if you wish, please use this letter which should be signed, addressed and dated.
Remember to submit your letter or email before the 29thMarch 2019 deadline to:
Core Bus Corridor Project
National Transport Authority
NRCC Residents Submission Letter
BusConnects Cover Letter

We feel that this is still too short a time for consultation and submission (the full draft document is 198 pages long) and we are trying to have this closing date extended further.

You can write to the Minister at the Office of the Minister of State, OPW, 52, St. Stephen’s Green, Dublin 2, D02DR67.
