IBut Iâ€™m hopeful that the government will announce the go ahead of the Interconnector and the DART extensions either this year or next.
I agree. Bertie stated in the Dail that Interconnector/Dublin Rail Plan was impressive. Everybody who comes across it and compares it to the Airport Metro is struck by how more practical and integrated the CIE plan is. I was on the Gerry Ryan show this morning and even he said as I was explaining why we need it with the limited imformation I fed his producer the night before agreed it was the solution to car congestion in Dublin as the majority of the traffic is coming from outside the M50.
Just about everybody with the exception of the RPA is on board at this stage. The best plans are nearly always the most simple and achieved incrementally over time in stages which deliver results at each stage and CIE/IE have been doing just that. The shift towards the announcement of the tunnel and the DART extentions is organic at this stage.
It’s a matter of “when” and not “if”.
