It’s high time we had a public transport thread. In this time of recession, I think it’s incumbent on us all, and particularly Ben Shermin as the TFK Minister for Transport, to ensure that adequate funding is put into transport in the state, whilst also keeping an eye on best practice abroad.
I’ll start with this feel good story today, that the good people of Citywest and Saggart are going to get the luas tinkling up the road sometime in 2010:
I am guessing not, given that I have to leave Connolly when going to Sligo, yet Heuston when going to Galway. Something probably needs to be done about that alright, but it’s a bit far away from Dublin for us to be thinking about. Although with Sligo Rovers in UEFA Cup action (at the expense of Cork obviously) next season, there may be a need to upgrade all transport links in the area. Watch this space is all I can say.
Sledge, can you please update the first post to give us a link to the Railway Procurement Agency. I would like to keep abreast of any news on the Metro construction and Luas extension projects. Thank you in advance, Bandage.
I always found it funny how that Abwehr spy turned up at Dingle train station in 1940 asking when the next train would be, only to be told a passenger train hadn’t been through Dingle in a year. After giving away this tell-tale piece of ignorance and the guards being informed of suspicious activity he took the bus but was trailed by detectives and arrested in Dublin.
Is that a windup? Until they bring some concrete proposals to the table, rather than just waffle, I’m afraid they won’t get a listing. Having said that, if it turns out that Ann and/or Gillian are fine looking sorts, and there are a few nudies pictures doing the rounds, that could change.
