Bus queue gets shel­ter at last

Bray People - - Special Report -

A BUS shel­ter and wheel­chair ramp have been in­stalled at the bus stop in the Old­court es­tate in Bray af­ter a a long cam­paign by res­i­dents and lo­cal res­i­dents.

One cam­paigner, Cllr. John Brady, has wel­comed the de­vel­op­ment. ‘I wel­come this work. It is a nec­es­sary im­prove­ment. Res­i­dents there have been without a shel­ter for over a year af­ter the old one was re­moved for safety rea­sons,’ said Cllr. Brady.

‘How­ever, pas­sen­gers had to wait too long for a re­place­ment. I started pes­ter­ing Dublin Bus and Richard Sheri­dan, Bray Town Coun­cil’s Es­tate De­vel­op­ment Of­fi­cer around a year ago for the re­place­ment. I would like to thank them both now. I know I had poor Richard prac­ti­cally per­se­cuted for most of that time.’

Old­court was one of the last bus stops in town to get the raised foot­path that al­lows wheel­chair pas­sen­gers safely get on and off the bus. Old­court is the ter­mi­nus for the num­ber 45 in to town.
