Reply To: Frank McDonald/Dick Gleeson Interview
Dick seems to favour the figure of 8 plan to link the two Luas line. I think he was quite clear that not linking the original scheme was a mistake. When pressed about the airport metro over the interconnector he was coy but my impression is that the interconnector is seen as a much more beneficial and necessary project. Both he and Frank made the point of how many people would actually require a metro service into the CC. From a holistic planning perspective light rail seems to have a better chance of contributing to the area it serves in terms of new perspectives and new development. Metro on the other hand gets people around more efficiently and faster.
