Castleknock road works chaos to continue till March 2011

Sunday, November 21, 2010

The chaos caused by the Castleknock Quality Bus Corridor Scheme will continue until at least next March. Fine Gael was the only group to vote against (see here) spending €8m on these works on the basis that there was no cost benefit analysis carried out. The decision to go ahead with the scheme was made in January 2009.

Design began on the Castleknock QBC before the crash in 2007.  It was initiated by Quality Bus Networks, a quango set up to identify roads where bus lanes could be installed. The locations seem to have been chosen more for their convenience and the availability of land than for any benefits they may confer on the routes involved. Essentially Quality Bus Networks are provided with a budget they must spend and as with all such public bodies they usually reach their spending target by year end.

The contractor John Craddock Ltd., provides a list of works to be carried out each week and this can be accessed here
