Re: Re: Dublin Port Tunnel
Your analysis of this is spot on as it an established fact that Dublin City Councillors only agreed to the Port Tunnel on the grounds that it would not form part of a larger orbital motorway. I’m sure that the NRA have been plotting and scheming to have get this back on the agenda for a number of years and have no doubt been lobbying hard. I don’t fancy that any moves to build a â‚¬1bn tunnel to link Mount Merrion and East Point will be announced anytime soon.
The movement of Dublin Port makes perfect sense in the medium term and the existing port is served by fantastic transport links in the form of the port tunnel and rail connection as well as the proposed B1 Luas extension. What seems to be the main block is the fact that the Drogheda Port Company and not the Dublin Port Company have proposed the Bremore facility which is a pretty lame excuse.
