Re: Re: transport21
Here is how, when completed, this “rapid” rail corridor will function:
8 times a day a train will leave Clairemorris and make its way to Galway via Athenry. Between Clairemorris and Tuam it will cross over the N17 at grade no less than 3 times.
It will then reverse out of Galway and return to Athenry and REVERSE again and make its way to Limerick.
Then it will REVERSE once more and make its way to Lim Junction.
and 8 times a day another train will do the same absurd dance in the reverse direction.
Average running speed 35 MPH.
In no other country would this joke be allowed to happen. Let alone be prioritised ahead of Navan, Midleton, Interconnector, Metro, Luas etc…
