Home Forums Ireland Metro West Re: Re: Metro West


That is a very well thought out article some excellent quotes such as

The architectural, planning and economic establishments are broadly united in the view that the M50 should be the new Pale for the capital, meaning settlement should be intensified within that generous spatial envelope rather than be encouraged to locate outside it.

This needs to be accepted in the Dept of Transport

Building MetroWest outside theM50 will copperfasten Dublin’s physical character as a US style ‘‘edge city’’, with such a low density of population that a high-frequency, low-subsidy public transport system cannot be supported.

His order on the above quotes undermines to a small degree the logic of his article which is for me one of the best transport pieces in recent years.

I ask just one question, what happened to the Cherry Orchard scheme?
