Letter to the Editor: Dublin transport management

The Editor,
Letters Page,
The Irish Times,

Dear Editor,

The Editorial “Time to join up the thinking” on Public Transport – particularly in Dublin – was timely, valid but somewhat understated. At my last count there were 43 separate bodies all with some degree of responsibility for Dublin Traffic and Transport. The sensible and logical approach is for a single Dublin Transportation Authority under the remit of either a directly elected Mayor or an accountable and elected Dublin Regional Authority.

I don’t often praise political opponents but a coherent structure for dealing with these issues was set out in the “Dublin Mayor and Regional Authority Bill 2010” introduced by John Gormley and with subsequent sensible amendments from Noel Dempsey. Unfortunately for Dublin and Ireland that Bill was blocked because of political expediency and opportunism. The basis for resolving our problems lie within that draft legislation and if the Government is serious they would simply re table that Bill and ensure its passage through the Oireachtas.

Yours sincerely,

Councillor Dermot Lacey
