Petition to restore Galway-Dublin 20-X20 service gathers almost 1,400 signatures

Published

on

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A petition to restore the Bus Eireann Galway-Dublin 20-X20 Expressway service has gathered almost 1,400 signatures.

The service – which served Craughwell, Loughrea, Aughrim and Ballinasloe – was axed by the semi-state firm following a viability review.

Bus Eireann says the route was not state-subsidised and the decision was taken to safeguard the viability of the 14 remaining expressway services.

The move has been fiercely opposed by local politicians who claim it is a contradiction of Government policy on providing public transport options to reduce vehicle congestion on our roads.

A petition created by Sinn Fein on website Change.org, calling for the service to be restored, has now gathered almost 1,400 signatures over the past week.

Galway Bay fm newsroom – As of midnight, Tuesday 3 August, the National Public Health Surveillance Team is reporting 1,314* confirmed cases of COVID-19.

As of 8am today, 187 COVID-19 patients are hospitalised, of which 30 are in ICU.

There has been a total of 5,044 deaths related to COVID-19.

Dr Tony Holohan, Chief Medical Officer, Department of Health said: “Today, the ECDC and EMA have strongly encouraged those who are eligible for vaccination but have not yet been vaccinated to start and complete the recommended COVID-19 vaccination schedule as soon as they can. Full vaccination is the best protection for you and your community from COVID-19, including from variants such as Delta, which is dominant in Ireland.”

“It is important to remember that infections in vaccinated people do not mean that vaccines do not work. While no vaccine is 100% effective in this way, these breakthrough infections that occur are generally much less severe, and they are associated with less risk of hospitalisation. Vaccines work.”

“Vaccination programmes are one of the greatest public health developments of our time. Not only are the COVID-19 vaccines available to you in Ireland all highly effective and very safe, but they are our road out of this pandemic. Vaccination enables protection of the whole community, including the most vulnerable. Getting vaccinated is an important preventative tool personally, but it is also an act of solidarity from an individual to wider society – an act that keeps one another protected, and ensures the continued safe reopening of our society and economy.”
