€23m for sustainable transport in the Greater Dublin Area

By Blandine Pidoux on 4 avril 2016

121 projects will benefit from public national funding to make public transport more sustainable and attractive.

The Irish Ministry for Transport, announced on March 16th the allocation of more than €23 million for sustainable transport projects in the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) under the Sustainable Transport Measures Grants (STMG) Programme for 2016. These projects, which include improvements to bus, cycle and pedestrian routes and revisions to traffic management systems are designed to encourage greater use of sustainable and public transport options, reduce congestion and facilitate economic activity in the GDA.

The total funding being allocated in 2016 is €23.21 million. This will be distributed between 121 projects within the Greater Dublin Area, including projects at a number of campuses that will encourage students to take the bus or to cycle to and from college.

Minister Donohoe said : ‘As economic activity continues to grow it is important that we encourage greater use of sustainable public transport options. The objectives of the sustainable transport grant scheme announced today are to increase the number of people using public transport and to increase walking and cycling, in particular for local trips to work, school, retail and leisure activities within the Greater Dublin Area. I am confident that as the approved projects are delivered they will further improve the attractiveness of sustainable and public transport options and help alleviate traffic congestion in identified areas’.
