You may recall the story was First Broken on the Pin
The Tribune hasconfirmed that the Primary Road corridors along the Western Seaboard, ie Derry - Cork (and I take it Waterford-Limerick and Rosslare-Cork) have now been abolished by Noel Dempsey .
Therefore their upgrades will not be funded by the exchequer and Noel will declare the National Primary Road network complete for the next general election …mainly because he got rid of nearly half of it with this scam.
Dublin Metro has provisionally ballooned in cost to €7bn you see.
Fuck the west over . Pull their roads and forget about all the promises made to industry in Galway about a proper road to Shannon Airport.
The Transport 21 plan to upgrade the Roads ( by 2021) has been now been pulled completely .
The NRA is actually looking at Tolling Gort - Crusheen for starters and then Tuam - Athenry and the Galway Outer Bypass. If they cannot raise some PPP interest the schemes are abolished. I hear interest is utterly underwhelming so far so thats that .
I would like to personally thank Frank Fahey, Chairman of the Dail Committee overseeing Transport, for keeping his own constituents informed of all these developments ( not) . Your conniving silence will not be forgotten Frankeen .
Frank made no case whatsoever for funding these corridors I am sorry to say, thats either in private or in public.
Here is text of the Trib confirmation .
