I can see Dublin metro hoovering large amount of cars off the road, DU likewise. But in a city that cant even provide a decent basic transport system, LOL at even the notion of them solving suburb to suburb transport (by public transport)
The problem is how quickly the sprawl happens vs transport deployment. Theyre talking about bringing the dart to maynooth now, maynooth and leixlip etc.. on that line were where commuters were buying 30 years ago , young professionals are priced out of there by now. The reality of it is that people under 35 are always usually stuck with buying a place which is only commutable by car. Theyre in the mature chapter of their career by the time public transport arrives

The toll before the M3 Parkway station was a really daft idea.

Exactly. The toll should be after the p+r to encourage more people to use pt.
A pure money grabbing excercise that was.
