Reply To: Metro – interesting idea
A stop there could be good alright – it’s a good looking building on our main street after all – but that’s all it’d be really – a stop. I would expect a central station to be a place where you can change from one mode of transport to another.
Unfortunately his statement in the paper today seemed to me to indicate that that’s as far as the line would go and it’s a half assed effort at reducing costs. If he’d stick to the DTO’s own Platform for Change document the interchange on the line would be at Tara street so at least it’d connect to DART.
After years of waiting Connolly and Heuston are linked (by Luas touch wood) and now planners terminate a line at Stephens Green and by the looks of things maybe even Carlton.
