It would be helpful if the planners, and those commentating, would avoid being so pompous about what is happening and show a bit more humility.
No professional involved in planning has apologised to bus (and Green line) passengers for what has happened. Changes are being rammed through in an attempt to alleviate the issues. Bus passengers are being told that they have to suck it up because apparently the needs of the LUAS supersede all other forms of public transport.
The problem is that you seem to be directing that at the people who are cleaning up the mess and those who are defending them.
The main people who created the mess were politicians, the RPA/TII and Dublin Bus for allowing Luas Cross City to be planned without accepting the wider impacts or without objecting to that because that’s what the department told them to do.
They buried their heads in the sand — maybe they were right? Because people who are sticking their heads out to fix the problem or those defending them are getting the slack now.
What a dreadful line, what you might expect out of a corporate meeting or an NTA flyer.
George's Quay is the last place you'd send buses to keep them moving if that is actually what concerned them (it doesn't)
Keep everything on College Green? That’d be worse for everyone, including bus passages.
Stop trams on a newly opened route? That’s not going to happen.
At some point we have to start being realistic, even if some people see that as being dreadful.
