Re: Re: Cork’s 500m euro North Ring Motorway
I agree with Frank there is definitely a case for upping the weighting towards rail transport in Dublin.
However as far as discussing the M50 as being comparable with Cork it isn’t a runner as far as I’m concerned. Cork already has its owm M50 in the form of the Southern relief road.
To complete this ring road would in fact be more comparable to building an Eastern Bypass to link the Port Tunnel with Sandyford. To this end and given that the existing rail infrastructure in Cork is All north of the river I reall feel that rail would offer more viable option and would certainly cost less and preserve more of the Green Belt.
There is a new forum over on http://www.platform11.org entirely dedicated to Rail transport in Cork.
