I totally agree that the two Luas lines should be integrated. At the same time, I wonder how much of a difference it would make. The vast majority of public transport journeys begin in the suburbs and terminate in the city centre. And nobody has any problem walking from Stephen’s Green to O’C St or vice versa. How many people are there travelling from Dundrum to Bluebell or Tallaght to Sandyford? And even if you were, a car would always be faster than a two leg Luas journey. When the lines are complete, they will function perfectly and do their job very well.
I can’t understand your point Graham about how anything is being “wrecked”.
Even if the Luas lines were integrated, one will have to travel underneath the other (and a simple escalator would provide the connector). You can’t run rail tracks into each other.
