Reply To: Metro
A metro is imperative. We have no available or cheap land overground, the only solution is to go under.
Dublin is the only EU capital other than tiny Luxembourg that has no metro system. In the applicant countries only the Baltic states are without one.
Greater Dublin will soon be 2 million souls and growing, so with a population like that how else do you get them from A to B in large numbers quickly??
Excellent website on all things metro at http://www.metropla.net.
