Galway Chamber Welcomes City Bus Corridor Public Consultation
Galway Chamber welcome the announcement of the proposed city bus corridor on Dublin Road going to public consultation at the end of this month. Galway Chamber, through ‘Get Galway Moving’, have been pushing for progress on the delivery of this key piece of infrastructure, and at the end of this consultation period will be calling for an expedited delivery.
The proposed development would see the construction of a 4km, multi-modal corridor, accommodating buses, motorists, cyclists and pedestrians.
Galway Chamber President, J.P. Gilmartin, commented, “For Galway to grow sustainably and be an attractive region, we must have exceptional public transport. That is why Galway Chamber welcome the announcement that the proposed city bus corridor on Dublin Road is going to public consultation, and we actively encourage our members to engage with the consultation.”
This development aims to improve journey times for motorists, provide cycling facilities along the road and improve pedestrian infrastructure.
Mr. Gilmartin continued, “While this announcement is progress, we must continue advocating for the full implementation of the Galway Transportation Strategy. A public transport corridor, improvements to our rail links, park & ride options, segregated cycle-lanes and improved pedestrian routes are collectively needed to actively encourage a shift from private to public transport.”
The proposal is due to go to public consultation at the end of this month and will remain open for six weeks.
