Is that you playing devil’s advocate, or is that your view ! ?

I don’t agree either way … we can’t have a situation where the motorway to our second city returns to single carriageway for 16km ! All interurbans are to be finished by 2010 & as it stands are on or ahead of schedule, there can’t be any further slippage in the 2010 deadline, remember 2006 was the initial target !

I’ve seen the term ‘inter-urban’ mentioned here a few times. This is not in any way anti-Dublin sentiment, but it speaks volumes of the attitudes of our recent governments that the basic definition of ‘inter-urban’ is “roads to Dublin,” while any other routes connecting the major urban centres apart from the capital are pushed down the agenda indefinitely. What does this say about their attitude towards decentralisation, the national spatial strategy etc? Were all these expensive studies just a complete and utter waste of time, money and resources?
