What the papers say - THE IRISH TIMES

News stand

A £550M upgrade of Dublin's M50 motorway - Ireland's equivalent of the M25 - will not ease congestion due to a predicted rise in traffic levels.

An environmental impact statement for the National Roads Authority says construction of new motorways such as the M3 could even make traffic levels worse.

The Irish government has promised to spend £25bn on state infrastructure over the next five years, of which £4.3bn will be invested in 2005. New rules allowing government departments to carry one tenth of the budgets over to the following year means an additional £164M will be available next year.
