Re: Re: Metro North-South
Yep, as far as I know, the T21 plan was abandoned and the extension is unsuitable for metro; the route past Sandyford “visits” as many green fields as possible on it’s way and has not been built to accommodate the planned wider carriages to support metro type capacities. If some of the Green line ever gets metrified, then Sandyford will be as far as it can go. I very much doubt this will ever happen; the RPA seem far more interested in dedicating themselves to developer-led extensions into countryside of the existing overburdened disconnected lines.
I’m not even that interested in what is being proposed here. The route selection process is over; Duggan should have made a media issue of this a year or two ago and maybe it could have been compared and evaluated with the other route options. At this stage, the story represents newspaper column filler only.
