    Link here.

    Public consultation open until February 1st.

    Draft strategy seems completely Dublin orientated, no mention of Cork or Galway Busconnects, transport plans etc.

    Dublin part looks good from what I can see, with the exception that they're fairly loose on the timing of electrification of the new DART lines. They're fairly loose on the timing of everything really, but I guess that's understandable given the length of time public consultation takes.

    In their defence, the document is likely designed exclusively for Dublin, as stated in the intro:
    "The Dublin Transport Authority Act 2008 requires the Authority, following the
    approval of a transport strategy for the region by the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, to prepare an integrated implementation plan covering a six year period."

    Just the usual confusion of Dublin/Ireland by a government body tbh.

    Indeed. The NTA have a different remit outside of the GDA and this isn't always made clear.

    The main issue I have with that document is after reading the document, I wondered why I wasted my time reading it. There is nothing new or worth reading in there.

    The lack of any sort of timetable for implementing DART Expansion is breathtakingly disappointing.
