Re: Re: Metro West
The difference with the DART and the Luas is that they both run through the centre! The DART isn’t packed with Dalkey people who have to get to their desk in Kilbarrack in the morning. It’s busy because the bulk of its work is carrying people into town.
How many people have to get from Clondalkin to Ballymun every day? Or from Tallaght to Blanch? I’m speaking as someone who travels from north to west by public transport- bus and Luas – at least once a week, and a metro would make my life a lot easier.
By all means connect the outer suburbs, but the transport network in the centre has to be consolidated first. Surely there are plenty of neighbourhoods closer to town that could be linked more cost-effectively than this, with the effect of increasing housing densities where we need it.
