Compensation call for commuters hit by rail chaos

  Compensation call for commuters hit by rail chaos Commuters returning to work are having to battle delays and cancellations after a train operator axed more than 150 daily services.  Northern has removed a total of 165 trains from its schedules every day until the end of July to eventually improve reliability.Services in areas including Manchester, Liverpool, Blackpool and the Lake District are affected - and beleaguered passengers have been told the emergency alterations will take two or three days to "bed in".A major shake-up of timetables across the country was introduced in May, but the changes have caused widespread issues as the rail network adapts.

Building a new garage attached to an existing home would normally need building regulations approval. Building a new attached carport (open on at least two sides) would not normally require building regulations approval if it is less than 30 square metres in floor area.

Government sources suggest that compensation of up to €25,000 per square metre will be paid for land taken from as many as 1,300 property owners.

While the aim is to keep the impact on individual dwellings to a minimum, some owners could be in line for payouts well in excess of €100,000 if large parts of their property are taken for the €1.5bn Bus Connects project.

Sources said it was hoped the substantial compensation package for lands acquired under compulsory purchase orders would help prevent any lengthy legal battles which could delay the project.

New bus routes will affect gardens and paths in a number of areas. The National Transport Authority today launches its new plans to reduce Dubliners’ commuting times. The document insists that “ compensation for the garden portion loss and disruption” would be given to affected homeowners .

Landscapers will also be hired to develop the gardens left behind, with the State also footing the bill for new driveways, paving, trees and shrubbery.

But homeowners will not learn if their home is in the firing line until the late summer or early September.

The National Transport Authority (NTA) said individual properties would not be identified until detailed designs were completed. It said compensation would be “generous” but decided at a later date.

Bus Connects involves developing 16 high-capacity corridors to cater for pedestrians, cyclists, buses and private cars.

With this new plan , you can earn more through growing your organization, avoid reaching a plateau in growth, and receive compensation from 45–47 percent of the company’s commissionable sales. This is well above the industry average of 38–42 percent.

NTA sources suggested compensation would be paid, and gardens landscaped, but Next month, the NTA will also begin a full public consultation on a complete redesign of the Dublin Bus network , which will include re-routing of existing services, changing bus stops and re-numbering of bus routes.

Sources suggest average payouts could be €20,000.

On some routes, up to 200 homes’ gardens could be affected, but no complete houses or buildings will be required.

NTA chief executive Anne Graham said the plan was needed to improve journey times in the city, adding that private car traffic would be affected.

“It will impact when you take away road space from cars. We believe the best use [of roads] is public transport and sustainable transport,” she said.

We’re willing to put forward a budget to mitigate [for loss of property]. We have to be generous in terms of mitigating measures. I would consider we will be making generous offers.”

Car parking spaces will also be reduced, both public and private.

In some cases, alternative car parking will be identified for affected property owners, and compensation could also be paid.

It is not clear whether compensation will be paid to Dublin City Council and other affected local authorities for the loss of revenue which would ensue if off-street car parking was removed.

Public transport will have continuous priority, improving journey times by between 40pc and 60pc.

Further details of the Bus Connects project also reveal that some roads may become one-way only, including Rathmines Road in the direction of the city.

Cars travelling outbound will be routed through Ranelagh.

Other roads likely to become one-way include Swords Road in Santry, St Mobhi Road southbound and Templeogue Road outbound.

This includes a new link between Clarehall and Belmayne Avenue; Prussia Street/Old Cabra Road, Mount Brown, and a section of Kimmage Road Lower.

A new bridge is also required over the River Dodder at the east end of Sir John Rogerson’s Quay.

Political reaction was broadly positive, with Dublin Bus saying the plan was “positive news” for its customers as it would help tackle congestion and make public transport a “better option” than the private car.
