Dublin’s MetroLink postponed for a further ten years

According to a draft strategy published by the National Transport Authority (NTA) Dublin’s MetroLink has been postponed for a further ten years.

The Luas line to Finglas is another project that will not start construction until after 2031.


DART extensions to Maynooth, Drogheda and Celbridge are due to go ahead under the first phase of the Greater Dublin Area Strategy 2022 to 2042.

However, work on DART extensions to Kilcock, Salins/Naas and Wicklow will not begin until after 2031.

MetroLink – which the cost is reported to have increased to €10bn – will not see construction start for at least another ten years.


This means the earliest completion date would be 2037, which is ten years later than originally planned.
