As for the underground option in Dublin… should the rest of the country really continue to pay for Dublin’s transport network?
Oh ooh, here we go again. More Dublin bashing.:D
Anyway, its not Dublins fault that rail in Ireland received little or no funding from the state, which let some lines to close and leaving others lines to fall into a near total mess. It was only until the ‘On Track’ programme in 2000, did the Government start to pump serious money to repair the existing lines and make them safe with a modern signaling system.
Surely it makes more sense to extend the dart, link up the luas, and increase the number of bus lanes rather than spend billions on the dream of providing Dublin with an underground that it doesn’t need
Well that exactly was CIE is doing. But guess what. It will cost billions to do that. In fact CIE has quoted â‚¬3.6 billion. And its all depends on a ‘underground’ rail line called ‘the interconnector’.
