I have my concerns about this. I have recently completed an analysis of population changes at the ED level for 1996 – 2006 (see link below). In the past 10 years we have had substantial low-density sprawl around Dublin in particular but also around other cities and smaller towns. The construction of an orbital route before the arterial routes are in place appears premature to me. I would think it better value for money to build transport systems that result in the greatest benefits being returned from the outset. Furthermore, the development of the arterial system would foster high-density development along these routes and slow the sprawl process, perhaps to the point of not needing the orbital route (unlikely, but you never know). High Density, High Quality, High Rise
