Ah, sure it’ll do!

Where else, except in Ireland, would you get away with this?

    Haha well necessity is the mother of invention. Here some places, it’s no more than a teensy yellow sign on a lamp post or telegraph pole, blink and you’ll miss the bus

    I think I recognise that street! Is the road not finished yet?

    Dublin Bus appear to be implementing a programme of improving bus stops, I presume to bring them up to EU standards of access for disabled passengers.

    The pavements at many bus stops have been dug up, the actual bus stops have been thrown in the hedge nearby and temporary signs (like above) left in it’s place until they get around to replacing the pavement.

    I’ve seen a few new bus stop concrete ‘platforms’ around Dublin which have raised kerbs with tactile paving on the edge (for vision impaired passengers) but as yet, I’ve not seen any with official ‘bus stops’ in place.

    In true Dublin style, we’ll probably have to wait at least another year for a new batch of bus signs to be delivered and then they’ll pull the new pavements up to install πŸ™„

    I took the above picture in Clontarf last Friday (in the rain) as it’s such a classic example of the “Ah, sure it’ll do” mentality in Ireland. It cracks me up to see tourists standing at these temporary signs.

    Well at least it’s spelt correctly – we have to be grateful for small mercies these days!
