Reply To: Look at de state of Cork, like!
the ‘Luas’ proposal was the result of a UCC study as far as I know and i think referred to a link between rail station and city centre, and im unsure of what benefit this short link would have.
i do think that a dedicated tram system may be viable from CIT-Curraheen- Bishopstown-University Hos.-Wilton-UCC-Washington St-Bus Station-South Docks-Blackrock-Mahon.
no need to physically cross the river just to hit the train station, kenneddy quay on the south docks would be sufficient if the 2 pedestrian bridges across custom hse qy were in place.
you are right, this has been ignored, probably because it was an Echo Story and sometimes the Echo should be read with spoons of salt
