The best times are 10am to 12:30pm and 2:15pm to 4pm (or 3pm Friday). They seem to answer during core flexitime hours only, and it may take a few calls for them to pick up. Don't bother leaving a voicemail as it could be days before it gets listened to and acted upon. Once you do get a hold of them, they're very helpful.

The station/stop upgrade, the tramway, the depot and parking trams there is exactly what the area needs.

Cleaning up and blocking off the tram stop and depot area and stopping it from being a playground for the disfranchise does a lot before you you get trams on the ground. Active security will be needed to keep the stop safe and keep the expensive trams safe. You'll also have the station/stop becoming more useful for locals and others, and that adds to passive security. As well as those things, with the arrival of Luas it's more likely that businesses (including Irish Rail and the Luas operators), landowners, residents and commuters see reasons to put on political pressure for the security of the area to work.

That's the theory anyway, hopefully it works.

Hmm. I would have said it needs a tunnel.

You need to drop napalm on either side of the tracks to get rid of the brush and the "dens" under the bushes where you'll see people congregating around small fires, and get rid of all of the shelters on the platforms.

Also, you'll need light posts that are at least 20 feet tall and surrounded by bulletproof glass that has very bright lights that will illuminate the surroundings.

Unfair for the fare paying public, but it should also discourage the scum from hanging around there and thus allow people to get the train without being intimated.

It'll also mean that said machines don't get vandalized.
