We urgently need to address the gridlock and traffic chaos beginning to return in Dublin.
In my submission to the National Transport Authority on the Metrolink Consultation last month, I proposed significant changes to the Metro link project which would improve the whole project and spread the gains to other areas.
One of these changes would be to extend the Metro tunnel to Rathfarnham. We should continue the tunneling machine south from Charlemont street to link with three new stations in Rathmines, Terenure and Rathfarnham. This transport corridor is one of the worst public transport blackspots in our city with no other easy solutions in sight. Taking this option would also remove the need to fully segregate the Luas Green Line, where there is real concern about restrictions to local access around existing stations.
Join me and my colleagues in the Evergreen Hall, Terenure on Wednesday the 27th of June at 19:30 for an informative meeting to discuss this proposal. Places are limited so make sure to register for your free tickets on our eventbrite page.
