Default No mention of tram

Simply building at Kent station without designing a descent tram system in Cork means that the city will be allowed clog up like Dublin without a forward thinking solution to maintain Cork as a top city in Ireland. Now is the opportunity to ensure that the train network is linked to a Luas type system in the city. The developers won't want to hear this becaus they might lose some space but that's why we have public representatives to insist at this point before the huge opportunity is lost.

Getting money for big spend capital projects is exceedingly difficult and a tram system in Cork is certainly not a top 5 priority. However, land should be set aside for an alignment. If nothing else, it can be put in place for bus access with trams added later.

Fantasy really

Given the size of Cork a bus option is likely to best, sadly large chunk of the West Cork railway has been built on which would have been ideal for a tram based system

Apparently this will open next week.

I wouldn't be surprised if they went for November 14th when the network is on strike.
