Minister of State for the Office of Public Works, Mr. Patrick O’Donovan TD, today announced the commencement of the public consultation for the Phoenix Park Transport and Mobility Options Study.
The Phoenix Park Transport and Mobility Options Study was published on 11 January and sets out a series of options for how park visitors will access, experience and move within the Phoenix Park while protecting the park environments. It makes a number of recommendations to reduce commuter traffic, increase the cycling and pedestrian opportunities and provide for limited public transport as well as taking account of the complex issues the Park presents given the multiple and competing users of the space.
Minister of State, Mr. Patrick O’Donovan said: ‘This is a great opportunity for the public to engage and participate in a process that will have a positive impact on the Phoenix Park now and into the future. I invite the public to take the time to review and consider the solutions proposed in the Study and I am looking forward to receiving as many submissions as possible during the public consultation’.
The public consultation will commence today, 29 January and will remain open for public input for six weeks, until 12 March 2021. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the public consultation will take place online. It will include a virtual room where members of the public can view the report and associated maps. It will also include a FAQ section and interested members of the public will be asked to complete a feedback form online and to make submissions. At the end of this consultation period, an analysis of the feedback received will take place with the aim of publishing a final report in April 2021.
