Charlemont situation is going to be very messy

The line will have to be 3m below road level and then rise to 5m above, so 8m, 1 in 25 give you 200m needed and since platforms have to be level all this happens after the stop, so going to result in one or more permanent local road closures.

Some fairly ugly CPO here

Note the alignment avoids the former Irish Nationwide building which of course is being knocked and rebuilt, of course it would have been so much easier to do the station and the building together...

The tie in will require the demolition of the existing embankment so there won't be any Green line trams beyond Beechwood for a long time while this is done

I have very little trust in the drawings they are very much draft, didn't see anyone out there taking core samples to investigate the ground conditions

It gets worse...

From Irish Times, "Dublin Metro may require homes to be demolished":

Quote:

Luas Green line users will also face disruption during the construction works, and those using the line to travel from northside to southside suburban areas will no longer have a direct journey but will have to change from Luas to Metro at Charlemont.
So this means Charlemont to Sandyford will be Metro only, there will be two disconnected Green lines, and to travel from Cherrywood to Broobbridge would require two changes?

Does anyone here think any of this is a good idea?

Its not a bad idea in principle, the reality is that the luas has not got capacity for its catchment. This might?

Better in the short term to provide BRT orbitals to the rail lines and increase frequency on the dart service and maybe two north south BRT routes to.

This all hinges on a linked up Train service which brings us back to the underground link.

The two seperate green lines could be rationalised, by connecting to Shankill Dart from brides glen and to suir road from harcourt (south circular road)
