I have to ask who runs Platform 11? Who is behind it? This is the same crowd that is against the Western Rail Corridor as it would be ‘unviable’ – a bit of an odd remark considering that rail/public transport by its nature is usually unprofitble. The problem about public transport in Ireland is its lack of integration – no more highlighted than the fact that almost all journeys between cities are via Dublin or ridiculously close to dublin.
The Luas is another disaster. Fine they look nice and shiny, but they are a failure. If there was just one line it could be excused, but having two lines that are disjointed is absurd. Furthermore, those lines being biased towards the southside smacks of pure prejudice or downright ignorance of dublins traffic crisis. Why on earth are traffic problems northbound not as urgent as those on the southside.
The interconnector is a good idea but it appears again to be biased in favour of southside commercial interests. Lets have proper balance in the development of Dublin’s public transport, regarding all commercial and public interests.
