BUS BAYS GOING BANG,

I still think it is ridiculous, either move them all to Parnell Place Bus Station or to the new area in Kent on the Quay side.
No doubt the dinosaur unions in Bus Eireann will only be delighted.

Here is one from back in the day :

The opening sentence:

"A former colleague here in Examiner Towers, now retired, once regaled us with one of his holiday highlights: the time he tried to drive around the Arc de Triomphe in Paris."

Is that the "Examiner Towers" that they got evicted from for not paying their rent just before they went into liquidation?

Clickbait, makes Cork Beo look like Le Monde.

Dropped one of the kids off there last night to catch a bus and traffic was flowing freely. Busses plenty of room and car traffic could pull in, passengers alight, and cars take off again all seamless. Passed it again this morning for a set down and those bays are ideal to let children for one of three schools off in the rain without choking up traffic. Absolute lunacy thinking it a clever to move those bus bays, and worse, now that Patricks Quay is to have a cycle-lane on the left it's effectively a single lane quay unless they're going to remove car parking from the RHS, which plays right into the coffers of those who own off-street car parks - people like the Coveney's.

It's nuts.

Even more baffling seeing traffic can now turn right up Brian Boru st, This will take a lot of traffic off Patricks quay

That's a good move though jimmy - albeit something that should've happened about 20 years ago, and certainly after Harley's Street was closed to traffic. Everything was being funnelled up the quays into what effectively was only two lanes at the top

I agree it is a good move, which makes removing the bus bays all the more difficult to understand,
