Green Party Transport Policy launched

The Party’s Transport Policy was launched recently.  It is a strong and comprehensive document.  Some of the interesting points:

  • The Baldoyle to Ballymun light rail/metro link is included (along with other light rail lines in Dublin Cork and Galway).
  • Climate change is a core concern of the policy.
  • There is a detailed cycling section which draws heavily from the work of the Dublin Cycling Campaign and
  • The policy recognises the induced traffic phenomenon, which means that building roads to reduce congestion fails.
