Default Ballycar Floods again (Jan 2018)

IE website reports bus substitutions probably for several weeks between Limerick and Ennis due to flooding at Ballycar. Same old performance while the Board of Works and other bodies play pass the buck. I wonder if the costs of bus subsitutions and foregone revenue over the past 10 years would have paid a sizeable proportion of the costs of fixing the problem.

in a real word, yes.

but the repair and upkeep of the track is not paid from the same pocket as the costs of replacement bus services so it doesnt happen.

the reality seems to be that this track will be flooded every winter for weeks if not months at a time and it should be resolved and future proofed.
