This line is already at capacity – the last thing it needs is more trains on it. It doesnt matter that there is nothing between the airport and the line if there is not capacity on the busiest train line in the country to run it. Unless you want to remove some of the northern suburban, Malahide and Howth services
Sure, that’s how things are right now at this present time. But Post-DASH and with the arrival of Spencer Dock, the situation will change and extra capacity will be released on the Northern Line
If the Dublin Rail Plan is fully implemented, then you are talking 6 double decker trains per hour from the airport to Hueston under the city centre in each direction.
Couple this with the already integrated nature of the present IE rail network and the RPA’s ‘bit of an oul metro’ is just a farce and offers appalling value for money.
The plan has been updated on the P11 website: http://www.platform11.org/inter_faq.html
