TEXT OF RESOLUTIONS REGARDING TRANSPORT IN DUBLIN ADOPTED BY THE DUBLIN COUNTY COUNCIL ON 28 FEBRUARY 1979.
1. “That Dublin County Council, noting
(a)the chaotic situation of traffic in the city and county of Dublin.
(b)that the Dublin Transportation Study prepared by An Foras Forbartha in 1971 has not yet received the necessary commitment of Government Funds.
(c)that the Dublin Rapid Rail Transit Study commissioned by CIE has been under consideration since 1975 by the Government with no commitment to provide the funds to enable new suburban rail links to Tallaght and new towns to be built and existing rail services to be improved
calls on the Government as a matter of urgency—to avoid a complete breakdown of transport in Dublin—by giving a firm commitment to build the essential road improvements specified in the Dublin Transportation Study and to provide the rail improvements specified in the Dublin Rapid Rail Transit Study.”
2. “That this Council calls on the Government to establish a Transport Advisory Committee with responsibility for planning all aspects of transport for the Greater Dublin Area, this committee to consist of representatives from the three local authorities together with representatives from the Department of Transport and Power, the Department of the Environment, CIE and the Gardai.”
