Re: Re: my ideas for dublin metro
On November 14, you will be able to board a Eurostar train that will get you from London to Paris in a little over two hours, or to Brussels in a little under. Building the “High Speed One” international line has cost Â£5.8 billion, or nearly $10 billion at current rates. And where will you catch that train? The gothic fantasy of St. Pancras, a station that missed out on the 20th century altogether. It is an almost surreal conclusion to a 40-year saga.
10 billion at current rates???? can anyone compare this with our metro north line???
Donâ€™t know about Dublin, but 2 weeks ago over here, the RATP announced plans to build a 40 km circular metro line around Paris called (The MÃ©trophÃ©rique), it would be situated at a distance of about 2km from the actual PÃ©riphÃ©rique, have a station every 1km and link up with all the existing metro stations on the city outskirts.
Estimated cost: Eur 6 Billion.
