Re: Re: Dublin Port Tunnel
You could equally argue that not developing these suburbs around existing public transport corridors was an equal failure.
Had the DRTS plan which was based upon the Buchanan strategy of the three large satellites been implemented both Tallaght (&Clondalkin on the same line)and Blanchardstown would have had DART at roughly the same time as the M50 opened. There appears to be nothing like a new rail line to increase plot ratios and unit numbers; the line the annoys me most is the Kildare line which given the terminus at Heuston gives no incentive for people to use beyond Hazelhatch because of the lack of a direct connection to the city centre.
The NRA may wish it were that way but ultimately the city must come first and if anything has to give it must be the ferry sailing times.
