NTA denies any plans to delay Dublin’s MetroLink

The National Transport Authority (NTA) has denied claims that construction of MetroLink have been pushed back by 10 years.

A draft of the Greater Dublin Transport Strategy plan for 2022 was published on Tuesday, which noted that MetroLink would not be part of the transport strategy until 2031.


The NTA published a statement on their website to dispute these claims.

The statement read: “NTA would like clarify some of the matters that have arisen in relation to the GDA Draft Transport Strategy published this week.”

“It is important to the NTA that our proposals are clearly understood and presented accurately to the public. The public consultation phase is a vital step in the final review of the Strategy and it is incumbent on the NTA to ensure there is genuine and constructive public consultation based on the facts.”


The NTA claims there has been no change to the proposed timeline for MetroLink.

The project is due to go into planning process next year, and will begin construction afterwards.
