Re: Re: Cork Transport
there are several routes through cork which are appropriate for a central median reserved bus system.
Buses are better because they can give relief immediately whereas light rail will take a minimum of 6 years.
They combined with the use of a smartcard allow us to analyse traffic patterns and find out where a light rail might be needed in the future.
They create the modal shift between car use and group transport, thus making it far easier to then build a tram network. It is much easier to close a lane on a road to proceed with utilities diversion/ track laying if people already have a alternative to the car.
Ha good idea come from me, negative comments come from you .
