Reply To: Luas and metro
The Luas and Metro proposals need to be looked at in the context of the overall transport strategy for Dublin. The DTO have updated their strategic plan and you can get some details or order a full copy of “PLatform for Change” from their site http://www.dto.ie
The question of station design opportunities is an important issue. Some of the potential stations such as Stephens green could be as deep as 20m and over 200m long. They will be significant structures ( even if undergriound ). Hopefully the proposed PPP procurement method will facilitate and not hinder involving the best designers, it would be great to see some local talent being given the chance too.
