The RPA are simply involved in a price war with CIE at this stage. It is not even about integrated public transport anymore. They just want the money to build any kind of metro, no matter how unintegrated or pointless it is.
Just give CIE the money to build the Interconnector/Dublin Rail Plan and enough of this codology.
All change for Metro terminus – From the Sunday Independent
THE Railway Procurement Authority is now looking at starting the proposed Metro transport system from near O’Connell Street on Dublin’s north side rather than St Stephen’s Green as it seeks to reduce the cost of the proposed system.
RPA chairman Padraic White said the initial “hardcore cost” of the Metro would be up to â‚¬1.9bn.
It had been suggested that the construction would cost up to â‚¬4.8bn but White said that this figure referred to 20-year costs for the system.
So there you go – “Integrated transport/ planning”, my ar$e! I just love the Irish concept of non-connected/ non-compatible mass transit systems. What gauge will it be this time? I hear 3’6″ is making a comeback.
Looking forward to another fine white elephant :rolleyes:
