PUBLIC MEETING: THE FUTURE OF NORTHSIDE TRANSPORT – SIX OPTIONS AND WHAT THEY MEAN FOR YOU
JANUARY 29TH, 7.30pm, COMET PUB (UPSTAIRS), SANTRY
Transport on the Northside of the city must improve. It is one of my key priorities. We need to cater for our growing population. We need to give the North West more transport options. We need to further connect the city to the airport. We need to make decisions for the future.
Following a study of 25 proposed options, there are now six options currently being looked at, which are highlighted on the reverse, and the Minister for Transport, Paschal Donohue, who will make a final decision on the issue this year.
I will be having a public meeting on this issue on January 29th at 7.30 in the Comet pub in Santry, and I would like to invite you to attend as we discuss this important topic.
• A DART link from Clongriffin to the airport and Swords.
• A DART link from the Maynooth Railway Line to the airport and Swords via a tunnel under Glasnevin.
• A Luas line from Cabra to the airport and Swords via a tunnel under Glasnevin.
• A metro proposal from St. Stephen’s Green, via Ballymun to the Airport and Swords (Optimised Metro North).
• A combination of a number of proposed Bus Rapid Transport services, including a line through Drumcondra and Santry.
• A combination of a DART link from Clongriffin to the airport and a Luas line from Cabra to Swords.
Minister Donohue is inviting submissions on your preferred option – and you can submit these on www.nationaltransport.ie by January 19th.
Given the huge level of interest in the projects, and the potential opportunities and challenges, I am holding a public meeting on the issue on January 29th at 7.30pm upstairs in the Comet in Santry. You are more than welcome to attend, and I would be delighted to see you on the night.
