Cork Developments

that uber cu next tuesday is urban green. Caught me for a large sume a few years back. I was out with some frends a few months back and he came up in conversation. 3 of the 7 in the group were owed money by him the lowest amount being 5k. There should be a law against people like him actually being within an arses roar of business dealings.
Does the court system not deal with unpaid debts?
 

This is going to lead to a lot of objections from the 'iLoVeMyCaR' folk.
Regardless of objections it physically isn't feasible to have one in Cork if it leads to demolition.
Also the impressions of it on Washington street, how are buses gonna pass? The cycle lanes will be gone to start with and footpaths for it to even be possible :ROFLMAO:and you don't need to be an engineer or transport expert to work that out.

We don't know the route yet so we can judge one way or the other.
What we do know is that the Cork Luas is going to take road space from cars, a lot of road space.
But it would be a transformative project in terms of Public Transport.

My point is that when projects like this are announced, people immediately have a negative view of it as they don't want to give up their car or road space for said private car.
Then when the government want to encourage people into buses and trams and the like, you get the usual 'Public Transport is crap, so ill stick with my car'

One can't have it each way.

It states it in the article you referenced 'The development of a light rail transit system running between Ballincollig and Mahon is one of the key objectives in the Cork Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy' I acknowlegde it says objective but that is more than likely the aim.
I myself am for it I have seen and used the benefit of the Luas in Dublin.

While I do drive myself I would happily leave my car for my commute to work however that is not feasible to do so. Road infrastructure/bus lanes aside we do not have enough buses or drivers to serve what already is poor public transport options. Invest in the basics first.
 
That article is actually part of the reason it's such a fucking nightmare to get things done in the public sector in this country.

They're obviously working behind the scenes to get options settled for the route. A massive part of that is emailing eachother on the issues involved, some of which will be contentious. The Echo then slap in a FOI request, and run a front page story about demolishing buildings the city centre, without any proper context.

Anyone who's worked for or with Councils will know you can't get fuck all down in writing because anything that is can be got under FOI.

From what I understand of the issues involved in the routes through the city centre is that the LRT wouldn't be able to take certain hard turning angles on the current road network, so something work will be needed to find that space. That could be losing corner buildings, or finding a through route between streets if it's only low value properties in the way. They're not talking about buldozing rows of 19th century buildings to create extra lanes.
 
holly cairns will surely save the entire cork building sector
