Re: Re: transport21
If Metro West could be scrapped in favor of a DART line, maybe the DART Underground could swing round the northside into a circle line (with station in arbour hill, smithfield, the four courts etc.), meeting that DART line at Parnell Sq. Various underground stations would then have LUAS interchanges, eg. OCS and SSG.
Then you have integrated metropolitan transport for the entire city centre not just as it is now but as it could be in 10, 20 30, 50 years in the future.
And if Metro North is only running every 12 minutes, that effectively removes Parnell Square from the true “Dublin Subway”, you might as well get off at OCS and walk…
And maybe low congestion charges could help subsidise the cost of this public transport.
