A journey undertaken on route 120 on the 24th March 2014
On the day I covered the 122 for the website it was also my intention to cover the other main bus route in Cabra, the 120. However, as I got delayed on that day, and battery power became an issue, I could only take half of the pictures I needed of the 120. Therefore it was necessary to return and finish off the 120, including a trip on it.
The route is another former City Imp route but operates wholly on the northside of the city. It runs from Parnell Street to Ashtown Station through Phibsborough and Cabra, but takes a different routing through the latter to that of the 122. In 2009 it was extended from Ratoath Road to the new development at Rathbourne beside the Royal Canal. The bus destination shows Ashtown Station but the route actually terminates down the road from the railway station. In the Cabra area it passes near Broombridge Station. This route is worth doing, but as soon as possible, as it crosses the railway line on a level crossing, and then the canal on a very narrow bridge on the Ratoath Road, but both are being replaced by a new bridge. The 90 degree turn on Carnlough Road/Ventry Park is also an important feature of this route.
On the day I travelled on Phibsborough's AV 430.
