Luas is sufficient? The above relates to 9 coach trains and your answer is 30m trams
No my answer was build the interconnector and the tram (7 ) which you would have noticed if you stopped focussing on trying to be clever.
The northern line currently can’t take any more train because of congestion .As allready posted the docklands station or broadstone can divert all sligo line trains away from connoly freeing up time for more northern darts The interconnector frees up more space by allowing dart to pass straight through the city and so get out of the way of intercity . routes .
What is so good about the interconnector is that initially it will cope with 16 trains an hour thats 2500 * 16 = 40 thousand people per direction per hour. when this number is reached it can be increased again in decades to come. The construction of a grade seperated slipway from the interconnector to the northern line will allow frequencies of up to 90 seconds. thats 60/1.5*2.5= 100 thousand per hour per direction. So it will be able to cope today and for the next 100 years. That is called good planning.
but i am sure that a 90 metre tram is more important than 300 metre train .yes well done.
