Taoiseach Micheál Martin has said that 2034 is a “realistic assessment” of when Dublin’s MetroLink will be delivered.
The comments come as Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan indicated last week that the Metro will not be delivered by 2027.
The Metro project will cost an estimated €3 Billion to complete, and will run from Swords in north Dublin and terminate at Charlemont near Ranelagh.
Duncan Smith TD of the Labour Party asked Micheál Martin today if he is still committed to MetroLink.
Martin replied by saying 2034 is a “realistic assessment of where things are at”, adding that they must be honest and realistic.
“There is a commitment to doing it,” Martin continued.
The plan for the Metro was first announced in the ‘Transport 2021’ plan in 2005.
