The NTA submitted the Statutory Planning Application for the Ballymun/Finglas to City Centre Core Bus Corridor Scheme to An Bord Pleanála in September 2022. The formal statutory public consultation period for this scheme is finished.

The appropriate assessment screening report and determination are available to download below.

For information, a small number of changes have been made to this scheme following consideration of the submissions received during the third round of public consultation (at the end of 2020) and these are summarised below.

  • A wider footpath is proposed on the western side of Cross Guns Bridge over the Royal Canal on Phibsborough Road, with signal-controlled priority for southbound bus instead of a short length of bus lane;
  • Sections of cycle track are provided at short gaps in the bus lanes on Phibsborough Road;
  • Less road widening and reduced land take from gardens is required at the southern end of Finglas Road at Hart’s Corner.
