On the above argument
Basicly you cant run a dart or metro onstreet can you?
Yes you can – as a Luas, trams seem to work elsewhere in the world
The Luas is a joke as far as im concerned, with a capacity not even worth talking of.
The capacity issue is one that has been bandied around by the road lobby obviously it is only going to serve a small amount of the population as it only runs through a certain catchment area i.e. you are not going to drive from Blanchardstown to use it. If there was a Luas in Blanchardstown you may use it and not the car.
intergration is key
Yes it is – but may I remind you that it was the FF Minister Mary O’Rourke who decided the lines would not meet
Another thing is WS Atkins an irish firm?
No – international
get consultants and firms from the continent in to do the job, that actually have experience and know what their talking about.
If there was a coherant plan from the government eg DTO report the consultants could react suitably to it – but with the dithering by the central government we have got what we voted in.
