Dart Underground Oral hearing begins
Monday 22 November
The Dart Underground
project will have an enormous impact on residents in East Wall,
North Wall and North Strand. I have fully supported the concerns
expressed by locals since this project was announced, and have
attended a number of meetings on the issue. Along with many residents,
I submitted my own observation to An Bord Pleanala, outlining
the issues of concern and requesting an Oral hearing is held.
The Oral hearing began on Monday 22
November, and will continue for a number of weeks. I have notified
the Bord that I wish to speak at the hearing. I will take that
opportunity to stress that residents concerns must be comprehensively
addressed by the Bord through strict conditions, as Iarnrod Eireann
cannot be relied upon to safeguard resident’s interests.
