How does building a totally unnecessary cable car which will only function as a tourist attraction constitute “lateral thinking”:confused:
That is a good question. It seems that the new thing in the DCC is to talk about improving “East – West permeability” in the city centre. The cable car is meant to be part of this plan, but is probably the single worst idea (or at least up there in the top 5) of the last 10 years. What really bothers me about it is that it has no real practical function for the citizens of Dublin, but will be visible from all over the city. I am not against tourism, and understand its importance to urban economies, but to build something that will be so dominant on the skyline, yet of no great benefit to the common good is ridiculous.
