Re: Re: transport21
of course running a commuter service from Oranmore doesn’t require the WRC: it is a mystery why this hasn’t happened already.
That the WRC is going ahead does not mean an excuse for delays in delivering the Navan and Midleton lines. All should be open asap imo.
The real benefits of the wrc should be seen in a strategic context – linkage between Waterford, Cork, Limerick, and Galway, with a renewed orbital route from Rosslare port around the country – as opposed to being only Dublin radial based. Whats needed now is for Irish Rail to get back into freight, and devise strategies as to how best maximise this infrastructure.
