I was in touch with the National Transport Authority regarding road markings that have appeared in Swords and Santry along the route of the proposed “Swiftway” bus route.
The NTA advised me that following the non-statutory public consultation earlier this year on the proposed Bus Rapid Transit network they are progressing with further route option selection and preliminary design work on the Swords to City Centre corridor. The intention is to display the Preferred Route during a non-statutory public consultation process at the end of next month.
The reason for the markings on the roads in Swords and Santry is to inform both the route option selection and design process. The NTA need a detailed topographically survey along the routes being considered.
The NTA will be informing local councillors of the impeding public consultation dates in due course. As soon as I get this information I will let everyone know.
