Are there 4 tracks from Rush and Lusk to Connolly, or is the line shared with intercity trains?
Sorry Frank I missed your post.
Both of the above lines are listed for upgrade to 4 tracks under the Iarnrod Eireann/ Oireachtas all party transport committee proposal that was first mooted by platform11.
The question is will the new minister for transport build a metro line for the tourists to get from the airport to Temple Bar & Rtn or will they link up the existing lines as suggested by IE.
The locations I suggested were off the top of my head but it is that type of area 12-15 miles out of the City Centre that would best suit your plan I think. Somewhere beyond the edge of the city where a buffer zone could be inserted to discourage piggy backed development and the eventual swallowing up of your suggested development into the city.
