Bus gate plans to be scaled back
Labourâ€™s Michael Conaghan said businesses had lobbied against the pedestrianisation of Grafton Street but it had been a huge success.
However following lobbying from city business interests the councilâ€™s transport committee yesterday voted to restrict the bus gate to 7am-10am and 4pm-7pm Monday to Friday only.
“Whilst Iâ€™m glad the committee approved a limited form of the bus gate, I think this was a missed opportunity to fully prioritise public transport, cycling and walking in the heart of our city.”
Dublin City Manager John Tierney is to appear before an Oireachtas transport committee in relation to the bus gate tomorrow.
