The decision to leave the Dart Underground project out of the national development plan despite rapid rises in rents across the commuter belt has been described as unforgivable.

The government’s Ireland 2040 plan committed to the expansion of rail and bus services and €5.7 billion for national roads but made no funding commitment to the Dart project. Set to run from Inchicore on the south side of the capital to Spencer Dock in the north, the 7.6km tunnel has been described as the missing link that would integrate Dublin’s suburban rail services. Its development was proposed to ease congestion but there were concerns over the estimated €4 billion cost and the government instead has sought to prioritise the Metro rail link from Swords to Ranelagh where it would link up with the Luas Green Line.
