Cars are the main obstacle to solving College Green jams
Everything can’t fit in College Green and thinking it can is not sound transport planning. Luas cross city was granted planning permission in 2012 and funded later that year. Six years on and some are still in denial of what needs to happen for it to work properly. It is unclear which failure is worse — the failure to realise that a high-frequency cross city tram would require the diversion of many bus routes, the failure of the political system to engage in the issue in a timely fashion, or the on-going failure of some in business, the media and politics to understand that bus passengers are not served well by keeping a high number of buses travelling through the area.
