On right track
Sir -- I refer to Maeve Sheehan's article on Metro North in the the Sunday Independent, August 1, 2010.
Belinstown is described as sparsely populated and rural. Fair enough, but this makes it an obvious location for the Metro North depot and the 2,000-space park-and-ride facility serving the M1. It is likely to be one of the busiest stops on the system given the congestion on the motorway south of this point.
The lack of population and other development also means the final 1.6km of track from Swords will be comparatively cheap to construct.
