LIFFEY Valley Shopping Centre is to win and Lucan to lose when the route of Metro West is announced today.
The Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) is expected to announce this afternoon that the capital's latest rail project will run from Tallaght via Clondalkin before linking up with Metro North near Ballymun.
It is believed that the RPA has chosen a route which starts in Tallaght. It will serve Tallaght village, Clondalkin town centre, Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and Blanchardstown town centre and Abbotstown, before linking up with Metro North south of Dublin airport. It will run for 28km and is expected to be complete by 2014.
