Share this article


Gardens of around 1,300 Dublin houses could be reduced to allow for bus and cycle lanes.

Homeowners along 16 routes into the city centre would get an average payment of €25,000 from the National Transport Authority (NTA) through compulsory purchase orders.

It comes as details were revealed of phase one of the BusConnects corridors project.

Routes in this phase include Clongriffin to the city centre; Swords to the city centre; Blanchardstown to the city centre; and Lucan to the city centre. 

However between one and four metres could be taken off the front gardens under the programme.

The NTA says all property owners potentially affected by phase one have been notified by post.

While a one-to-meeting is also being offered with each of them.

Community information sessions will also be held along the four routes in early January.

The project will see 230kms of bus lanes and 200km of cycle lanes on sixteen of the busiest bus corridors in the city.

On the four corridors unveiled, annual passenger growth in Dublin Bus services has increased by up to 14% in the period 2015 to 2017.

Phase two will get underway in mid-January and will run until the end of March featuring six corridors.
