Re: Re: The destruction of St. Stephen’s Green
I just can’t help but notice that two of the world’s largest subways run under two of the world’s finest cities and were laid predominately over a century ago, without colossal disruption of prized city assets. Unless Hyde Park and the Tuileries Gardens were excavated… but somehow I don’t think they were.
Not to mention, all the statues need to be taken down on O’Connell St? How close to the surface are they tunnelling? And if statues need to be taken down, what does that say for building foundations along the route.
Hopefully the economic collapse will rid us of this turbulent project. We’d get about ten Luas lines for the same cost.
