Re: Re: Before the Bulldozers: Images of a Doomed Suburb
SD, the 1971 DTS referred to in the caption also included this road and many other suburban distributors, many were built, some weren’t. It’s the same philosophy and the same outcome. For the City as a whole…. the evidence has been all around us ever since. It never worked in the past and can never work in the future.
As for linking Dun Laoghaire to Stillorgan… why? What demand is there for that movement? Why should estates be destroyed to facilitate this? The 30,000 vehicles won’t be making that trip, they will only go as far as NP Ave to the N11 and M50 – either commuting by car in an area where a myriad alternatives exist or compounding the problem of orbital movements being almost exclusively by car.
As for vendettas, I have plenty. Against State-sponsored vandalism, against designing our cities for an obsolete mode, against compromising the ability of mass transit to operate, against redundant failed philosophies determining our futures and against backward governance.
Did you at least do the decent thing and have a quick look at the EIS and the inspector’s assessment at the end of his ABP report?
