    - Commence construction of the National Train Control Centre and a new train station at Pelletstown
    - Take delivery of 8 new longer trams in 2020 and continued delivery of tram extensions for the existing fleet as part of the LUAS Green Line capacity enhancement
    - Investment in the PSO bus fleets
    - Commence delivery of additional InterCity Rail Cars
    - Provide enhanced maintenance and renewal of the existing heavy rail network
    - Commence construction of a number of important Active Travel infrastructure projects

    €9m to be allocated for greenways and cycling infrastructure. utterly farcical; as was pointed out on twitter, that'd pay for 300m of the proposed galway bypass.
