The underground part is boring and bland, no doubt it'll be used as a public toilet after a while so it'll become more 'atmospheric'.

we seem to be caught in groundhog day but the plans actually get less ambitious!
So sixteen years later the one thing they didn't envisage doing which was to open up the midleton line was the one that actually happened ? That's great.

Is it down to Bus Eireann and IaranRod Eireann where these facilities are sited or is it some quango overseen by the politicos?
The reason the company is heavily subsidised is because they have to provide a service whereby OAPs can travel for free (that would stop instantly if in private ownership) and some non-profitable routes are maintained as a service.

No.


BAM Construction and a Irish Rail are taking a big section of the City side of Horgans Quay and developing offices / apartments in phase 01.

The planners decide what goes where as per their development plan and pre-planning discussions with the developers.

No what??????

Irish Rail - is that money going to go into funding Irish Rail in the future?

The "planners" tend to react to request rather than be pro-active. Developers put in a suggestion, it gets knocked around a bit, and then generally it comes out something along the lines of what the Developers had in mind.

If there was a two way bus link running up and down Horgan's Quay (dropping and collecting people at the train station on the way) one would have thought it would have made any development further out of town all the more attractive.

Iriah Rail lease the land and the developer decides where things go so that they work and are financially viable.

What money ?

There will only be any return to the semi-state over a period of say 20 years as the developer has to invest in professional services to get it designed and built.

The planners do new development plans every 5 years so how is that not pro-active? If yiu do not take the planners recommendations on board you get refused planning and an bord pleanala refer to the development plan at appeal stage anyway.
