Re: Re: Metro West
The fact that the Luas couldn’t go any further is probably the main reason!!!!
I’m not so sure that the Dame Street area is that much busier than the Green during the week; there has been a lot of office development over recent years in areas such as Harcourt St, Hatch Street, Kevin Street, Golden Lane etc. The logic is that people will walk from High St to Dame St but would be unlikely to walk from Dame St to Charlemont Street or Portebello.
Catchment for underground is I reckon 400-750m depending on the individual.
Integrated ticketing is a must whatever they do and 3 years after the RPA launched theirs with great fanfare it doesn’t work.
