What do you think of bus corridors on the N11?

The N11 Priority Bus Scheme is on public display tomorrow in the Glenview Hotel from 12pm to 8pm.



The expert transport planners and design team from ARUP consultants will be on hand with drawings, designs and answers to your questions.


They want to hear all your views and observations on how this scheme could be improved or your concerns on how it could impact the local environment.


This stage of the consultation is to feed into the preferred route option and to produce a detailed design and Environmental Impact Assessment for a planning application.


The Bus Priority Scheme aims to improve reliability of bus/coach/public transport on the busiest section of the N11. The scheme priorities are continuous priority and enhanced bus lane provision from Junction 9 to Loughlinstown where buses will join the existing N11 Core Bus Network. The scheme is designed to remove current delays on the bus network enabling the bus to provide a faster alternative to car traffic along this route.


I don’t expect everyone to take a bus or train and never drive again, but if we continue making public transport affordable, frequent and reliable it will reduce traffic, improve air quality and climate emissions and free up road space for those that choose to or must drive.

We are making great progress on the DART extension to Wicklow Town, have increased rural and urban bus routes across Wicklow, reduced transport fares and the first N11 Park and Ride is in for planning permission. The bus corridors project is another important step in public transport for Wicklow.


Please join me at the Glenview between 12pm and 8pm, tomorrow Tuesday 12th September and let me know your thoughts on this N11 transport improvement scheme. (if you can’t make it there’s plenty of information on the website N11/M11 Bus Priority Interim Scheme (n11m11bpis.ie) and also the opportunity to submit observations online.
