[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).
