Answer by the Minister for Transport
(Martin Cullen)

REPLY

Transport 21 includes a Metro line from the City Centre to Swords via Dublin Airport (Metro North) and an Orbital Metro route (Metro West) linking Tallaght with Clondalkin, Blanchardstown and Ballymun.

The detailed planning work, public consultation and the statutory approval process will determine the precise route what Metro West will take

Transport 21 also provides for feasibility studies to be undertaken on a range of projects, including an examination of the extension of a Luas line from Liffey Junction via Finglas to Sillogue
