Cork to get New Contra Flow Bus Lane

Cork City Council’s Transportation Strategy includes measures identified in the Cork Area Strategic Plan (CASP). One of the major elements of this strategy is the implementation of a Green Route Network to improve Public Transport in the greater Metropolitan Cork area.

As part of the Green Routes initiative within Cork City a new Bus contra flow lane will be introduced on Camden Quay and St. Patrick’s Bridge as and from Tuesday 21st August 2007. This traffic change will facilitate provision of an improved Public Transport system on the North side of the River Lee. Passengers using the number 2 and number 3 bus routes will especially benefit as a result of time savings.

From Tuesday 21st inbound buses from North of the river will travel West to East on the Northern side of  Camden Quay, turning right onto the Eastern lane of  St. Patrick’s Bridge and bypassing major delays on Lavitt’s Quay. Parking on Camden Quay has been removed since midnight on Wednesday 15th August 2007.

 Contra Flow bus lanes operate continuously 24hours and 7days a week.

Taxis, Hackneys, Cycles and Motorcycles are NOT ALLOWED
