In todays Independent..
Transport Minister Martin Cullen is reportedly planning a â‚¬6bn 10-year transport package that will include the construction of a second terminal at Dublin Airport and an underground metro line linking the airport to the city centre.
Reports this morning said the package included â‚¬3.5bn for the metro line, which would run from the city centre to Swords, via the Rotunda Hospital, Dorset Street, Drumcondra and Whitehall.
It also reportedly includes the reopening of commuter rail services between Dublin and Meath at a cost of â‚¬156m, the expansion of services in Co Kildare at a cost of â‚¬400m and the building of an underground line between Heuston and Connolly Stations at a cost of â‚¬1bn.
Elsewhere, this morning’s reports said the plan envisaged the replacing of toll booths on the Westlink bridge with pay-as-you-go and billed charges.
Details of the plan are reportedly due to be announced next month if the cabinet approves the spending.
