The Bray to City Centre Core Bus Corridor Scheme (the Proposed Scheme) will support integrated sustainable transport usage through infrastructure improvements for active travel (both walking and cycling), and the provision of enhanced bus priority measures for existing (both public and private) and all future services who will use the corridor.

The Proposed Scheme has an overall length of approximately 18.5km and in addition, the section of Stonebridge Road included in the design measures approximately 200m.  The Proposed Scheme is routed along R138 and commences at the junction of Leeson Street Lower and Earlsfort Terrace on St. Stephen’s Green. It runs along Leeson Street Lower and Upper, and Sussex Road. It continues along Morehampton Road and Donnybrook Road, through Donnybrook Village and on to the Stillorgan Road, serving the UCD Interchange via the Stillorgan Road Overbridge at Belfield.

The route then continues on the Stillorgan Road (N11), which carries on to the Bray Road to Loughlinstown Roundabout. From Loughlinstown Roundabout it runs along the Dublin Road (R837) to St. Anne’s Church and then continues south through Shankill village along the R119. It then passes through Wilford Junction and along the Dublin Road until it terminates on Castle Street in Bray, on the north side of the River Dargle crossing.

The aim of the Proposed Scheme is to provide improved walking, cycling and bus infrastructure on this key access corridor in the Dublin region, which will enable and deliver efficient, safe, and integrated sustainable transport movement along the corridor. The Proposed Scheme is a key measure that delivers on commitments within the National Development Plan (2021-2030), the Transport Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area (2022-2042) the Climate Action Plan (2023) and the National Planning Framework 2040.
