FULL DUBLIN LUAS NETWORK

BACKGROUND  WE HAVE DESIGNED THE FULL DUBLIN LUAS NETWORK TO WORK IN CONJUNCTION WITH THE LUAS CITY ORBITAL ROUTING. WE BELIEVE THE NETWORK TO BE AN EFFICIENT, BENEFICIAL AND COST EFFECTIVE SOLUTION TO THE  TRANSPORT NEEDS OF USERS AND BUSINESSES ALIKE. WHY HAVE WE DESIGNED THIS NETWORK? WELL QUITE SIMPLY WE HAVE IDENTIFIED A NUMBER OF MAJOR FLAWS IN THE PRESENT THINKING BEHIND PUBLIC TRANSPORT PLANNING. FOR EXAMPLE, (AND WE HAVE MENTIONED THIS MANY TIMES IN THE PAST),  THE PRESENT PLANNING OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT IS BASED ON THE RADIAL EFFECT. THAT IS, ALL FORMS OF PUBLIC TRANSPORT COMES FROM THE OUTER SUBURBS TO THE CITY CENTRE LIKE THE SPOKES ON A WHEEL. IN LAY-PERSON'S TERMS THERE IS NO "JOINED-UP THINKING". OUR PLAN IS BASED ON AN ORBITAL OR CIRCULAR SYSTEM. AS CAN BE SEEN FROM THE MAP ABOVE, OUR "STEM" TYPE ROUTES (E.G. LUCAN TO BALDONNEL OR TO BLANCHARDSTOWN OR THE CITY CENTRE) CAN CATER FOR TRANSPORTING PEOPLE TO VIRTUALLY ALL AREAS OF DUBLIN AND WHEN NEARING THE CITY CENTRE IT CAN USE THE RED OR THE BLUE LINE TO VISIT THE CITY BUT ALSO TO CONNECT TO OTHER SUBURBS, TRAIN STATIONS, DART AND SO ON.

 

ANY PLAN MUST BE DESIGNED TO SUIT THE USER WITH A DIRECT AS POSSIBLE ROUTE TO THEIR DESTINATION, BEARING IN MIND THAT THE SYSTEM MUST ALLOW FOR EASY CONNECTIONS TO THAT DESTINATION. AFTER CAREFULLY EXAMINING THE LAYOUT OF DUBLIN, THE EXISTING BUS AND RAIL FACILITIES, THE LAND USE POTENTIAL AND THE GROWTH NOW AND FUTURE GROWTH POTENTIAL OF THE GREATER DUBLIN AREA, WE CAME UP WITH THIS NETWORK PLAN THAT WILL CATER FOR FUTURE GROWTH OR EVEN RETRACTION OF THE POPULATION AND THAT IS ALSO, WE BELIEVE, AN EFFICIENT AND COST EFFECTIVE WAY TO THE SOLUTION OF TRANSPORT IN DUBLIN. IF YOU LOOK AGAIN AT THE MAP YOU WILL SEE THAT THE LUAS CITY ORBITAL IS THE IDEAL SOLUTION AND HAS AN EVEN GREATER ADVANTAGE IN THAT IT ALLOWS THE FULL LUAS NETWORK FOR THE CAPITAL TO ACCESS ALL AREAS OF THE CENTRE WITH MINIMUM STREET DISRUPTION.

COMPATABILITY OF TRANSPORT SERVICES IT IS IMPORTANT, AT THIS POINT, TO MENTION THAT WE ALSO ENVISAGE THAT ALL TRASPORT SERVICES MUST BE COMPATIBLE IN PROVIDING AN INTEGRATED TRANSPORT PLAN THAT MEETS THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE USERS IN AN EFFICIENT, BENEFICIAL, AND ATTRACTIVE WAY IN CONJUNCTION WITH ALL OTHER TRANSPORT MODES, LIKE FOR INSTANCE, THE CAR.

BUS  WE SEE THE USE OF THE BUS AS AN EASY MODE TO MAXIMIZE ITS POTENTIAL IF THE BUS CORRIDORS ARE FULLY COMPLETED AND IMPLEMENTING OUR SYSTEM OF 'THE QUAY BUS CONTRA-FLOW' BEING USED AS THE WORK-HORSE OF THE WHOLE BUS TRANSPORT SYSTEM. ITS FLEXIBILITY IS ITS KEY COMPONENT IN ALLOWING THE BUS TO FEED ALL OTHER MODES OF TRANSPORT AND TO COMPLIMENT OTHER SYSTEMS OF TRANSPORT LIKE RAIL, LUAS AND DART.

RAIL  THE POTENTIAL OF CITY RAIL CAN ALSO BE EASILY MAXIMIZED WITH OUR 'THREE-LINKED' MULTI-PURPOSE RAIL NETWORK (A-B-C).A IS THE THREE MILE LINK FORM THE KILDARE LINE TO ADAMSTOWN TO THE SLIGO LINE AT LEIXLIP.B IS THE HALF-MILE RAIL LINK FROM THE BACK OF CONNOLLY RAIL STATION TO THE NEW DOCKLANDS STATION. C IS THE RAIL LINK FROM THE CLONSILLA LINE TO THE NORTHERN LINE VIA THE AIRPORT. THIS IS ESSENTIAL FOR ANY FUTURE RAIL EXTENSIONS AND EXPANSIONS.

LUAS  IS THE 'IDEAL' SOLUTION FOR DUBLIN AS IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO TAKE USERS DIRECT TO ALL AREAS IN AND AROUND THE CITY CENTR, AS CAN BE SEEN ON THE ABOVE MAP.

SO IT BECOMES OBVIOUS THAT COMPATABILITY IS THE KEY IF THE PUBLIC TRANSPORT NEEDS OF OUR USERS ARE TO BE FULFILLED.

 

 FULL LUAS NETWORK COMPRISING ROUTES A - B - C - D (AS PER MAP DETAILS)  

 ROUTE A: THIS IS THE LUCAN AND BLANCHARDSTOWN LINE WHICH GOES PAST HEUSTON ALONGSIDE THE MAIN LINE RAIL ON CON COLBERT ROAD, UP THE BACK OF BALLYFERMOT INTO LIFFEY VALLEY AND ON TO LUCAN WITH A 'BRANCH' LINE TO BLANCHARDSTOWN.
 
ROUTE B:  THIS WILL RUN ALONG THE PRESENTLY DISUSED BROADSTONE LINE AND ON TO CABRA, FINGLAS AND 'BRANCHING' TO BALLYMUN.
 
ROUTE C:  THIS WILL PASS THROUGH THE PORT TUNNEL TO THE AIRPORT, WITH 'BRANCH' LINES TO CLONSHAUGH AND DART/MAINLINE RAIL.
 
ROUTE D:  THIS WILL RUN ALONG BAGGOT STREET TO DUNDRUM, WITH A 'BRANCH' LINE TO TALLAGHT. INITIALLY THIS WILL RUN IN/OUT VIA THE GREEN LINE.
 
 
TRAM MOVEMENT  TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT WE ARE PROPOSING, TAKE AN EXAMPLE OF THE LUCAN/BLANCHARDSTOWN LINE. THE TRAM, WHEN SHOWING "A1", WILL MEAN THAT THE TRAM COMING INTO THE CITY CENTRE FROM LUCAN WILL GO CLOCKWISE AROUND THE LUAS CITY ORBITAL. AND WHEN THE TRAM IS SHOWING "A2" COMING FROM LUCAN, THIS WILL MEAN THAT THE TRAM WILL GO ANTI-CLOCKWISE AROUND THE LUAS CITY ORBITAL. WHILST THIS MAY SOUND CONFUSING AT FIRST, THE BENEFITS WILL MEAN YOU HAVE CHOICES ON WHAT PART OF THE CITY YOU WISH TO GO. THIS CLOCKWISE AND ANTI-CLOCKWISE USE OF THE TRAM MAKES THE TRAM MORE EFFICIENT BY USING THE SAME TRACK SPACE FOR TWO-DIRECTIONAL ROUTING. IT GIVES USERS A SERVICE FROM MOST OF DUBLIN TO THE CITY BUT ALSO ALLOWING USERS TO INTERCHANGE AS REQUIRED DIRECTLY TO OTHER DESTINATIONS.
 
THIS PLAN IS DESIGNED TO BE FULLY INTEGRATED WITH ALL OTHER MODES OF TRANSPORT THUS AVOIDING DUPLICATION OF TRANSPORT MODES TO THE SAME AREAS WHEN NOT REQUIRED. LIKE ANY PLAN YOU MAY WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS OR TEASE OUT SPECIFIC DETAILS THAT YOU HAVE IN MIND. TOM NEWTON IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE EITHER BY PHONE, BY EMAIL, OR IN PERSON TO DISCUSS ALL THE PLANS ASSOCIATED WITH TOM ON THIS WEBSITE. ALL MAPS ARE FREE TO PRINT OUT AS YOU MAY REQUIRE.
