The Bogmeadow Bus Terminus in Enniskerry was officially opened on Thursday (June 2nd) by the Cathaoirleach of Wicklow County Council, Cllr Shay Cullen, in the presence of Cathaoirleach of Bray Municipal District, Cllr Aoife Flynn Kennedy.
The completion of this project is the first phase of the Enniskerry Accessibility Improvement Scheme.
By relocating the bus terminus from the village centre to the existing Bogmeadow car park and creating improved cycle shelters and parking facilities, it has allowed the removal of on-street parking from the village centre and a much improved and safer pedestrian environment in the heart of Enniskerry.
Mr Brian Gleeson, Wicklow County Council Chief Executive, said: “Bogmeadow Bus Terminus development is one of many National Transport Authority (NTA) projects in progress and its completion and opening, is a clear demonstration of Wicklow County Council’s commitment to sustainable transport and active travel measures for the future in conjunction with the NTA.”
The success of the project is testament to the combined effort of the staff of Bray Municipal District, the Active Travel Team, Wicklow County Council and the local community groups.
Cllr Shay Cullen, Cathaoirleach Wicklow County Council, stated: “This completed project has significantly enhanced the area. Thank you to the local community who continue to make Enniskerry the beautiful village it is.”
Anne Graham, Chief Executive Officer, National Transport Authority, added: “This project is just one of several hundred, not just in the Greater Dublin Area, but across the country, being funded by NTA as part of the overall plan to make cycling and walking easier and safer for more people.”
Wicklow County Council would like to thank the National Transport Authority for providing funding to facilitate this project.
