The campaign group has likened the current proposals to a "Berlin Wall" which would ruin communities and cause "commuter chaos". Their alternative proposals would see the metro remain underground on the south side of the city and routed "through UCD and onto Sandyford".
We do need to Rethink Metrolink. It makes real sense to think big about public transport in South Dublin. By continuing the tunneling machine, either to Tereneure/Tallaght or UCD Sandyford, we can keep the Luas green line open and spreads the gain to other suburbs. @RMetrolink https://t.co/qOJ9arxOQC— Eamon Ryan (@EamonRyan) November 26, 2018
A planning application to An Bord Pleanála is set to be submitted in the third quarter of next year with a decision anticipated in 2020. Construction is currently scheduled to begin in 2021. The project group anticipates that the light rail metro system would carry more than 50 million passengers per year.
Communities ruined by “Berlin Wall” incl Windy Arbour. How will school children, cyclists, ederly, disable people cross with high speed driverless train track segregated along its length by a 4 metre high wall? @Shane_RossTD @campaignforleo @MurphyEoghan @LOVE_DUNDRUM @EamonRyan pic.twitter.com/R3B0J0d9RD— Rethink Metrolink (@RMetrolink) November 28, 2018
