Re: Re: transport21
One other point to make, the Metro North and some other elements of Transport21 were announced and approved in previous publications of Programmes for Government.
There are currently discussions between the Greens and FF to draw-up a new Programme for Government and you could well see the shelving of some transport21 stuff as a result!
Expect its publication end of next month! So exiciting!
Lets hope the cabinet are also in agreement and shaing our love!
I do hope, and can not but expect to see the Dublin Transport Authority to be a key deliverable from the new program as well as the Interconnector. Lets see about Metro!
I totally agree; a new programme for a new era; building Interconnector and spur lines from the Northern and Western lines seems totally acheivable in the context of fiscal constriants. With the inter-urban road network largely complete and paid for following an unprecendented spend over the past decade, Luas built in 3 out of 4 intended directions from City centre and you get a picture that once the Luas link up and Interconnector are completed with Dart extensions to Airport, Swords, Tallaght etc that Irish Transport is far from the embarassment it was ten years ago. A lot more reasons to be positive than negative and at a price that is affordable.
