Fair point yet a similar situation is happening with buses purchased now that will no longer be acceptable in a few years time. Electrification could start now so that there is a phased introduction but instead itís further delay and poor planning with the commuter suffering.
These are concrete actions that can begin to make a difference including restarting the railway line project to Navan that has been put on ice.
Each progression is discussed at election time and then forgotten until the next canvas we are inept when it comes to transport planning.

In my recollection the same party who basically didn't give a toss about letting Rosslare-Waterford be closed...

While I'm generally supportive of the Green Party, I think they have never showed much initiative when it comes to transport in this country. I think all of the projects on their list have been knocking around for years.

The only mention of Metro is Metro West. I don't think Metro North/MetroLink or whatever it's being called this week is by any means certain to go ahead.

Since this has been posted under Navan Rail, it's probably worth saying Navan Rail only gets one mention, in a list of bullet points.

Shame not to see more ideas.

Navan just isn't happening, the M3 made sure of that

The cost at 2004 prices was 465 million, not including trains, so you can imagine it to be upwards of 600 million by now. It doesn't wash.

Default Navan railway review advanced

https://www.meathchronicle.ie/news/r...pen-next-year/
Looks as if the reality of commuting into Dublin is recognized in govt and the review of the Navan railway corridor is timely. Itís a no brainer that this dormitory town should be linked by rail to Dublin. Just do it.
