Plans for additional bus layover spaces at Dun Laoghaire DART Station have have drawn criticism from the harbour’s 800-plus-berth marina.

In a letter to berth holders, Dun Laoghaire Marina says the proposed change, which would see a number of car parking spots on Harbour Road re-designated for bus use, “will mean a further loss of car parking within the harbour and one which directly impacts marina visitors”.

The marina company has already made a submission to the Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council under the open public consultation “as we are greatly concerned with the 55% reduction in car parking around the marina over the last decade”.

It added: “While we support any additional public transport connections within the harbour (or locally), the continued reduction in car parking spaces which serve an 820-berth marina cannot go unchallenged.”

Full details on the new bus stand layout are available on the DLRCoCo website and submissions are open until to Friday 12 January 2024.
