Bus queue gets shelter at last
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.
