What the papers say - THE IRISH TIMES

News stand

The projected costs of Dublin Airport Metro have risen for the second time from £2.4M to nearly £3.5M, according to a study by pro-rail lobby group Platform 11. The group claims the metro plan, proposed by the Railway Procurement Agency, was flawed in safety, capacity, integration and cost areas. The study has been submitted to Irish minister for transport Martin Cullen.

The £10.4M Greystones Southern Access Route in north Co Wicklow may not be connected to the road network for another two years.

The new route to the N11 stops 600m short of the road in the middle of a field. The National Roads Authority pulled out of building an interchange because the site was found to be a former unlicensed dump. A solution has been developed but will take two years to build.
