This is highly recommend, was at the launch today and the map is stunning.

The level of detail is brilliant and the presentation is world class.

Emm... are ye sure this isn't a fancy roundabout way to promote BRT's (which BTW I not wholly against). The fact that the author went out of their way not to put the Metro lines in the maps makes this nothing more than good old fashion crayonism, no matter how fancy it looks.

Its a design project, not a transport project.

Err...Yep, I've kind of guessed that Colm.

Still, would have been a bit more creditable it the designers tried to stay as close as possible to T21 and not put their vision of the network.

I ran into Aris this evening at the Cycle Chic event (Yeah, I went to a fashion show). He had a paper version of the map and it did provoke a good side discussion.

Maybe the author doesn't believe any rail projects in T21 will actually happen?
