After months of campaigning on the issue, Minister Harris can confirm to residents of Hollywood that Wicklow County Council and Transport Infrastructure Ireland are considering three measures to improve rural transport with:
– A new bus stop in Hollywood
– Traffic calming measures to improve safety
– New Parking Facilities
Speaking today Minister Harris said: “For months I’ve been engaging with both the Council and Transport authorities in a bid to secure a new bus stop in Hollywood and make sure Hollywood residents have better transport facilities.
“There is a clear and urgent need for improved traffic and public transport measures in Hollywood and I am determined to get these over the line as soon as possible, especially as the weather turns over the autumn and winter months.
“The proposals currently being considered will see a very welcome investment in Hollywood’s transport infrastructure including traffic calming measures, a bus stop and the construction of new parking facilities.
“I’m really glad these issues are being progressed as residents in Hollywood deserve better when it comes to transport infrastructure.
“On top of this, Bus Eireann have informed me they have a team ready to get their boots on the ground and install any bus stops that are approved, so I’ll be pushing for these to be expedited in the coming weeks.
“I plan to monitor this issue closely and deliver the right infrastructure for people living in Hollywood village.
Minister Harris concluded: “People can count on me to keep them updated on the issue as I will be raising it day in and day out till the measures get approved.”
