National Transport supports delaying plans for DART Underground

The National Transport Authority  (NTA) has backed the decision to delay the DART Underground, saying the reasons for building it have changed in the meantime. The Dáil's transport committee has been told that the original plans for the line no longer apply, because of other improvements made since it was first announced. Rail chiefs are examining three alternatives to the abandoned €3bn plan for a Dart Underground to link intercity and Dart lines beneath Dublin. The Government confirmed in September it was shelving the original design for twin 7.5km tunnels, 25m below Dublin, to link railways from the west and south to the northern lines.
