Re: Re: Cork Transport
well a 2+1 with slip roads on and off would certainly be much safer than other roads. And building such a road would a lot cheaper.
The reason i started this was to at least get somebody thinking . a easy billion is being spent building the road to cork. what other things might that have paid for ?
if the train had a very large capacity and was substantially faster than the road , how many would be left driving ?
Duilding a dualcarriage way does not future proof much at all, as i have repeatedly tried to explain. What it does is fuel the city sprawl, generating useless commuter traffic. I am not trying to blame the people who do live in the outer suburbs. They are caught in the difficult position of having no options.
As a country one ought to be putting in place group transport before individual transport.
Now were are stuck with trying to entice a quarter of a million people into cork and dublin, because it will never be possible to service them adequately whereever they are, or at least at any reasonable cost.
