Call for Dublin Bus to install new bus stop on the Boghall Rd in Bray

Sinn Féin councillor John Brady is calling on Dublin Bus to install a
new bus stop on the Boghall Rd in Bray to serve bus users from the
Oldcourt and surrounding estates and schools which have been left with
no bus stop close by since the cuts to the bus routes in the area.

Speaking after meeting with local bus users councillor Brady said "Bus
users from the Oldcourt estate, local businesses and schools have been
left totally inconvenienced following the recent cuts to the bus
service in the area. The 45 bus route had for many years terminated in
the Oldcourt estate, however this route has been cut and the 45a from
Ballywaltrim now goes down the Boghall road. The bus no longer goes
into the estate, but there is a bus stop just outside the estate for
people going down the Boghall road heading towards Bray. The problem
is on the return journey, the nearest bus stop is at the end of the
Soldiers Rd which is a good distance for people to travel after

Cllr Brady continued "I am calling on Dublin Bus to address this
problem by installing a new bus stop adjacent to the Oldcourt estate
and the Lincara Centre on the Boghall Rd heading towards the Killarney
Rd. I am also calling on them to install a bus shelter outside Oldcourt to
facilitate school children and local residents."

Cllr Bray concluded "I think this is the least Dublin Bus can do for
their customers in the area who have had to endure major changes to
their bus service and the loss of the 45 route which was a critical
link to many services. I have contacted Dublin Bus and i am awaiting
what hopefully will be a positive response."
