Plans for the final six new bus corridors for Dublin have been made public for the first time.

The third phase of BusConnects relates to the following areas:

  • Ballymun to the City Centre (Option A & B)
  • Finglas to Phibsborough
  • Bray to the City Centre
  • UCD Ballsbridge to the City Centre
  • Blackrock to Merrion
  • Ringsend to the City Centre

From today, people who use public transport in those areas are being encouraged to give feedback on the proposal.

390 homeowners along those routes who may lose part of their gardens for the lanes have been invited to one-on-one meetings.

The National Transport Authority believes BusConnects is "fundamental to addressing the congestion issues" in Dublin.

The BusConnects project will create 230kms of dedicated bus lanes and 200km of cycle lanes.

They will run along sixteen of the busiest routes in and out of the city centre.

Anne Graham, CEO of the NTA, wants affected homeowners to "engage in the consultation process that is underway until the 30th April so we can look at the issues they wish to see addressed".

"We are committed to deepening engagement with communities along each of the sixteen routes", she said.

Public feedback in the first two phases of BusConnects has already led to changes being made.

Anne Graham said they include "an alternative layout at Santry on the Swords to City Centre route".

The NTA is promising to hold public information events for phase 3 of BusConnects in the next two months.
