Trees and gardens due to get the chop under the controversial €2bn Bus Connects plan are to be saved, according to information seen by the Irish Independent.

The scheme to reduce traffic gridlock and journey times in Dublin was first mooted by the National Transport Authority (NTA) under the Bus Connects banner in 2018. But the proposal for 16 bus highways radiating out to the suburbs from the city centre was met with a widespread backlash.
