SAVE OUR TREES - BAGGOT STREET

SAVE OUR TREES BAGGOT STREET

BusConnects is the National Transport Authority’s [NTA] programme to greatly improve bus services across the Dublin region.

A recent study showed Dublin's overall tree canopy covers just 10% the city with a much smaller percentage of trees in the city centre. This contrasts with Stockholm in Sweden, the international leader, which has a 57% tree canopy, Helsinki (49%), Warsaw (36%) and Copenhagen (28%). However there are plans to remove about eight hundred trees to make room for new bus corridors.

Ciarán Cuffe of the Green Party has stated: “Plans to bulldoze through long lines of mature trees on Baggot Street Lower and elsewhere are wrong. People have a long memory of Dublin Corporations cavalier attitude to road-widening and steam-rolling through their plans in the 1970s and 1980s."
