Frank O’Rourke TD has called on the national transport authority and Kildare Co Co to provide a Bus Lane on the M4 which could be done as part of the upgrade that is going to take place this year on the motorway
“Given the increased numbers using public transport and the requirement to provide a better public transport service for people livening in North Kildare, we need to ensure that Bus travel times reduces to enable a better service.” Continue reading “O’ROURKE CALLS FOR BUS LANE ON M4”
James Lawless has criticised the failure of the Government and Minister Shane Ross in particular for their failure to urgently tackle the pressing issue of lack of capacity on the Kildare Line
James commented, “With an election looming we could badly do with a new Minister for Transport who actually engages on the brief. I have raised the parking (and carriage capacity) issues at Sallins in particular, and Kildare line in general, with Taoiseach, Tanaiste and Minister Ross numerous times but it seems they are not listening.”
“In the meantime I continue working with private and public interests and pushing for the stakeholders to work this out but really its time for a new government and a new Minister to instruct the NTA and Irish Rail, provide budgets and make this happen.”
Yesterday in the Dáil James Lawless asked the Taoiseach to intervene in the ongoing crisis with parking facilities at Sallins Train Station.
James commented, “The carpark expansion has not been delivered and this week’s board meeting of CIE kicked plans to touch again. The Minister for Transport has refused to take any interest in the issue. The Taoiseach has now requested Minister Shane Ross to respond directly to me on the matter. I am also seeking an urgent meeting with the Chief Executive of CIE. This cannot continue.”
