Let’s not dig ourselves into a hole on the Dublin Metro plan
Cliff Taylor: We need solid evidence before starting this €4bn tunnel. I’ve been Metrosceptical for a long time. It’s no surprise that the Metro plan, cancelled during the economic crisis, is back on the agenda again. And I’m willing to be persuaded it is the right thing to do, in some shape anyway. But it is likely to cost up to €4 billion and if we are going to spend that amount of money on one project, we need to be as sure as we can be that it is going to work.
