Re: Re: Metro West
A lot of traffic is predicated on a major new junction with mainline rail on the line out of Heuston. All the traffic coming out of the West, Limerick, Cork, Waterford, and all the commuter rail out of Kildare could change there to access Dublin Airport, Tallaght and all the other points in between without having to go into the city. That and a combination of Blanch & Liffey Valley shoppping centres as well as the 2 ITs will likely generate a lot of traffic.
BTW geat site, congrats to all involved.
Also South Dublin County Council have just advertised an LAP for lands at Newlands Cross – and the chosen route passes these lands and indicates a future stop there.
These lands could contribute commuters in due course and, if a park and ride is provided, cars coming from Limerick/Cork etc on the M7/N7 can pick up the Metro there and travel anywhere in the city region from there by rail/Luas? (I don’t mean the car – the occupants!)
