Mate, I don't think any sane person could disagree with that. (of course the stupid argument I've had thrown at me when I say simialr to yourself, is "look at Ballymun, Finglas ,Ballyfermot, north innner city, they are all built up areas, and look what happened there!" I just give up rather than start explaining that there are a million other factors at play in those cases. Built up areas do not always have to become ghettos!! Look at Clonmel!)

Spot on, the taxpayer is subsidising the cost of all the roads around the East Link.This is what I have an issue with.There should be a maximum level set on € per km(regardsless if one's a bridge or as opposed to open road)
At least for the new m4(Kinegad), the N8(Fermoy-when opened), the M1(Dundalk), I feel I'm getting something that is vaguely worth the cost, in terms of petrol saved.
As the title of this thread is "Enfield/Kinnegad bypass tolls to be highest in country", I don't wish though to start talking about other toll roads though.
In absolute terms, that is, ignoring other toll roads, EUR 2.40 is a lot, you could go to the cinema on your own for the cost of only 3
journeys approx on the toll road, or indeed go with your partner for the cost of only 6
journeys approx on the toll road.
