[Thread] This is factually incorrect research. 4,700 trees will not be felled. I have spent over 7 months researching the @BusConnects Core Bus Corridors and I've written 10,000s of words for @dublincycling. This research suffers from a clear fatal flaw in the methodology
The methodology is completely flawed. They drew a 20m wide corridor along each route on satellite photos and attempted to count the number of affected trees. This is completely ignores the actual published maps from #BusConnects.
At first this methodology seems reasonable. The optimum cross-section for the Core Bus Corridors is just a car lane, bus lane, cycle track and footpath in each direction (image 1). However, sometimes there is a median or grass verges (image 2).

Quick response to @DermotLeary's confusing, misleading, and often outright dishonest piece today, see image below. (1/)
.@DermotLeary argument here emphasizes all the downsides of the plan and conceals of the benefits. It's exactly like telling people that a job is terrible because you have to work, while never mentioning that you also get paid. (2/)
So again, the point of @busconnects is to massively expand people's ability to go more places, so they can do more things, so they have more opportunities in their lives. That's what @DermotLeary, @NBRU_DUBLIN, @pb4p, and many councillors/TDs are attacking. (3/)
