Labour’s transport spokesperson has said that the initiation of metrolink oral hearings with An Bord Pleanala marks a pivotal moment for Dublin but are too long delayed, writes Rachel Cunningham.

“The government’s procrastination has only exacerbated the challenges faced by our city and its residents,” said Duncan Smith.

“We cannot afford to delay any longer. Metrolink is a pro climate, pro economy, anti-congestion project which will be transformative for our city.

“By providing sustainable travel options, reducing congestion, and curbing air pollution, metrolink will significantly improve the quality of life for residents in North County Dublin and beyond.

“It’s time to bring Ireland’s transportation infrastructure into the 21st century.”

Mr Smith urged stakeholders involved in the hearing to prioritise the common good and work together towards a swift implementation of the plan.

“Our communities cannot afford further delays. Let this be the beginning of a new era of efficient, sustainable, and accessible transportation for Dublin,” he said.

“We welcome the commencement of the first oral hearing on the proposed Metrolink and hope for a smooth onward process leading to the swift implementation of this transformative project.

“The time for action is now, and together, we can build a better, more sustainable future for Dublin.”
