Climate Action Plan
One would think that rail transport did not exist, when reading the new government Climate Action Plan. For example:
Data is given for CO2 emissions from cars, trucks, buses ships, but no mention at all of rail.
There are intentions to produce a new rail strategic plan: no specifics, one can imagine how many expensive consultants will be hires to produce another mountain of paper.
There is mention of acquiring hybrid trains: nothing more specigic, and already announced anyhow
Rail electrification to Maynooth, Hazlehatch and Drogheda is (mentioned) (promised), but we knew that was coming anyhow.
"Add additional capacity to LUAS network": this could mean almost anything.
