Thats true no doubt.

Tell you what though, I'm pretty sure a Dublin mayor would have provided a more compelling case for funds for Dublin transport than any of the last 3 transport ministers have done. FCC have alot to answer for in rejecting the proposal.

Default Electrification and Navan rail

http://amp.irishexaminer.com/breakin...mpression=true
At last CIE are thinking of the future usually they only obstruct the development of rail transport. The piece mentions the wait for electrification , why the wait itís obvious that it must happen given the oil situation and our failure to meet climate change goals that Ire signed up to. Itís now that the likes of the rail line to Navan should be opened and for a change put rail ahead of road building though I know thatís where the politician and the developer are on the same sheet. Electrify now and expand rail to airport and Navan.
