Reply To: Dublin needs this approach
Build low density housing in an urban sprawl, every one with a handkerchief sized garden, but in such a manner it is inherently inefficient to ever be served by any form of public transport.
Ignore various reports etc going back to the 1960’s pointing out this is a bad thing.
Talk for many years about LUAS,route etc but do nothing.
Introduce bus lanes with gaps, and 24hr /7 day bus lanes with no buses (at night, Sunday morning until 10 or after)and wonder why the car is popular.
Consider that congestion charging will, on optimistic forecasts for London , knock out 10% of traffic while car sales have, in most recent years,increased by more than this per year.
Go back to step one.
