Cllr Sarah Holland has called on residents along the Rathfarnham to city centre bus routes to read the proposals for the Bus Connects routes and engage with the NTA on them. The Cllr. said “The NTA have released information for phase 2 of the project, and it says that 255 houses will be impacted along the route. This could mean a partial front garden or parking space removal, possibly along the Rathfarnham Road. Public transport solutions are much-needed given the increasing congestion on our roads, but residents need to make sure they are informed and up-to-date on proposals, and to be ready to engage with the NTA.”

The NTA have said they have issued letters to all affected homeowners this week, and they will also be holding a series of public meetings.  They also hope to set up a community forum for residents associations and other interested parties.  Expressions of interest for participation in this should be sent to and the consultation process for Phase 2 ends on 29th March 2019.
