38 million over three years sounds great, dosnt it. But to buy sites and develop them it is way too little. For the P&R to work it must be adjcent to a station. Land prices near lines are at a premium and knowing that they must bid on a specific spot, the owners of the wanted land are free to ransom it. IE just dont have the money. However, the DoT and the Minister will shout to the rooftops about the 38 million come May and blame IE for not putting in the P&R. The fact that the DoT may as well have provided nothing whatsoever will be lost.
