@berneyarms: OK, so that means that the NTA are useless. I could list other huge expenditures they are proposing, while neglecting ongoing facilities.

The capital/current distinction can be carried to absolutely ridiculous extremes.

There are plenty of stations with surplus TMVs, one could be moved and placed next to the Luas ones.

Stations with 4+ TMVs when likely in excess of 80% is Leap, Annaul or Free Travel is a poor uss of resources.

Well letís be honest the current rolling stock crisis is down to NTA inaction and dithering.

The late delivery of the footbridge and direct interchange at Broombridge was down to NTA funding delays as I understand it.

Itís very simplistic to blame the operating companies.

I can see the need in stations with significant InterCity service or commuter service beyond the Leap boundaries.

However, aside from Heuston and Connolly, and maybe Pearse and Kent, I'm struggling to think of which ones might require that number.

Indeed and they have even removed surplus TMVs at Heuston (ones at P6-8) All they need to do now is move all ones in the ticket hall to the main concourse. Daily queues yet those in the ticket hall are empty. They are incapable do anything sensible.

Grand Canal Dock does not need 4 TMVs, 2 is more than sufficient however it would be perfectly fine with 1 because even at peak hours only a handful of people use them.
