Can someone please clarify the metro west concept for me? It runs at grade, intersects traffic and can clearly not achieve “high speeds” without the risk of ploughing into some bag laden shopper. Isnt it just a fat luas?

Defined by the RPA as “a flexible mass transport system that can be segregated through areas were segregation is required…The Metro concept is for vehicles up to 90 metres in length operating at up to every one and a half minutes at ultimate capacity through the busiest stations. “

I don’t think it will hav to wait at road junctions, it will be more of a level crossing scenario
