N11 Bus Priority Scheme will create traffic jams
Closing the Enniskerry and Kilcroney road connections to the N11 will produce traffic jams in Bray, Enniskerry and on the N11. The bus lane only scheme does not provide any place for the displaced traffic. The main scheme, which has been worked on for 5 years, provided a lane parallel to the N11 to take this traffic from the two closed junctions.
I have made a submission to firstname.lastname@example.org saying the main J4 Loughlinstown to J14 scheme, which includes a bus lane and a parallel lane, should go ahead quickly. I would urge anybody who agrees to write to that Email address.
Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan has postponed/cancelled the main scheme by not funding it for 2022 or 2023. The population has expanded along the N11, both Greystones and Wicklow Town by 15% from 2016 to 2022 and many more houses are being built.
The Council is writing today to the Minister to urge funding for the main scheme. €3m is needed to take the project to the next stage, and it must be funded in 2024.
