That same echo story had a quote from the city manager in which he stated that a tram system was not on the current list of priorities, but may be consideredin the distant future. The City Council is currently investing alot of money on quality bus corridors which cost significantly less and carry just as many people. The other priority has been the park&ride scheme which is to be extended to all major approach routes. The park&ride scheme in conjunction with quality bus corridors will provide an excellent service in several directions at a fraction of the cost of a tram system. The costs incurred, and the safety implications of the existing tram system in Dublin are enough to make other solutions seem far more reasonable.

It is not the function of the National Trust For Ireland (An Taisce) to object principally to any scheme on the basis of inadequate road access, it is relevant to cite it as ‘another reason’ in particular cases but it in isolation is not enough.
The montage of the scheme you are ‘whinging’ about looks fine, but no montage takes account of more than one angle. But in from the angle it looks fine, there are no other structures in the montage, so I don’t see how anyone could complain relying on that image.
Lexington has often made the point that An Taisce ‘object to everything’, as soon as they don’t……..
This thread has entirely ignored the proposed Luas for Cork which would do more for Cork than every other project mentioned here as the solutions.
