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. Available here

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.
