Public consultation opens on Cross-City Link bus corridor

Galway City Council has today launched a public consultation on a proposed public transport connecting the east and west sides of Galway City, with new infrastructure and by removing car traffic from the city centre.

The proposed Cross-City Link would cover a route through the city centre connecting University Road with the Dublin Road, to increase the efficiency of public transport between the west and east sides of Galway City.

The Cross-City Link is one of the projects given priority in the Galway Transport Strategy (GTS), and is meant to deliver improved journey times for buses, decrease car traffic, and encourage more sustainable travel modes.

This will involve giving priority to buses by banning general traffic from the route between 7am and 7pm daily, as well as the addition of improved pedestrian and cycling infrastructure at many locations along the route.

Members of the public are being invited to view information and documentation relating to the proposed Cross-City Link through a virtual information room, and leave feedback.

The public consultation will run for a minimum period of six weeks before the scheme design heads to the planning stages.

For those who cannot access the project website to review proposals, alternative arrangements will be facilitated. Please contact Galway City Council by phone – 091 536 400; or email – busconnects@galwaycity.ie.

This project is being delivered by Galway City Council in partnership with the National Transport Authority, who have committed to a multi-year funding arrangement for the Link.
