Living between Dublin and Copenhagen I find it fascinating how the Danes have such a fantastic public transport system compared to Dublin’s.

The Danes like the rest of the world have embraced underground and elevated metro\train tracks decades ago while here in Ireland we are still stuck in the car\bus mindset.

Our surface roads are at max capacity and the obvious solution is to create new dedicated and unobstructed underground and elevated roadways for metro-trains that flow freely and don’t compete with car, bicycle and pedestrian traffic.
Correct.

An entirely new network needs to be created as every other city which reached our size and smaller has found out.

But the plan is to have underground lines near or beside the existing Dort lines, instead of running to the newer suburbs.

The new bus corridors will displace traffic creating traffic choke points which did not previously exist.

Has the impact on traffic been modelled correctly? Of course not. If such studies have been done, where are the results? Where is the methodology outlined?

This is incompetent arrogant Soviet-style central planning.

It is not a plan made by people who see Dublin as a growing dynamic city,. It is a plan that treats Dublin as a decaying shîthole.

Dublin is a great beautiful European capital.

It is not Astrakhan or Detroit.
