The Lucan to City Centre Core Bus Corridor Scheme (the Proposed Scheme) will support integrated sustainable transport usage through infrastructure improvements for active travel (both walking and cycling), and the provision of enhanced bus priority measures for existing (both public and private) and all future services who will use the corridor.  It commences at the N4 Junction 3 and is routed along the R835 Lucan Road from its junction with the R136 Ballyowen Road to the roundabout serving the Lucan Retail Park and also the N4 Lucan Road eastbound on-slip. The Core Bus Corridor is then routed via the N4 (passing the Liffey Valley Shopping Centre) as far as Junction 7 (M50) and via the R148 along Palmerstown bypass, Chapelizod bypass, Con Colbert Road, St John’s Road West, ending at Frank Sherwin Bridge, where it will join the prevailing traffic management regime on the South Quays.

The aim of the Proposed Scheme is to provide improved walking, cycling and bus infrastructure on this key access corridor in the Dublin region, which will enable and deliver efficient, safe, and integrated sustainable transport movement along the corridor. The Proposed Scheme is a key measure that delivers on commitments within the National Development Plan (2021-2030), the Transport Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area (2016-2035) the Climate Action Plan (2021) and the National Planning Framework 2040.
