Dublin residents asked for feedback on plan for €3bn Metrolink line
A public consultation is beginning on the proposed €3bn Dublin Metrolink. Once operational, in 2027, the service will be able to carry around 30,000 people an hour in both directions. Some 4,000 jobs are set to be created during construction. Metro Link will run predominantly underground linking Swords to Dublin Airport, and then through the city centre to Charlemont, at which point it will take over the Luas line south to Sandyford. This is the preferred route, but there will be at least seven public meetings starting next week, where locals can have their say, and learn how it affects them. Na Fianna GAA club and Home Farm football club will both be affected during construction, while Metro Link project director Aidan Foley said that around 100 properties will also be affected in Glasnevin, Tara St and Charlemont.
