Dublin’s public transport users are expected to start smelling better from tomorrow as water restrictions in the evenings are to be eased.
Problems at the Ballymore Eustrace Water Treatment Plant had lead to water restrictions being put in place, preventing many from washing themselves before going to work.
This had led to wafts of disturbing body odor floating through buses, trains and Luas carriages over the last number of days.
Although the combined body odor of commuters had in fact made the temperatures of the buses rise, it was making it difficult for people to breath.
Speaking about the issue one commuter has said:
There’s only so much Lynx Africa you can use to cloak the smell. It was getting so bad that at one stage I was nearly making myself throw up a little. It was getting really tough on packed buses too when I had to stand and hold on to a handrail. I think I made an old lady have a stroke one morning because my pits were smelling so bad.
The majority of people will be smelling better from tomorrow and it’s expected that more water treatment plants will be built to help avoid future body odor problems affecting public transport systems.
