    What debate ..... its a vitally needed piece of infrastructure that offers value for money, employment and a possible vision of Dublin being a21st century city

    Instead of debate you mean it neds to go through the process of the Irish Whinge fest that would have us all still growing potatoes on small holdings

    Funding it. I'm 100% behind Metro and Dart Underground and have championed both on this site.

    But how we pay for it is now a serious problem given the crisis in the public finances. And this report suggests the PPP process is not going as smoothly as we all thought.

    It is capital investment, the Health budget won't be touched to pay for it. The exchequer should pay for it if the PPP tender fails (not that I agree with PPP). Projects like this do have a multiplier effect provided most of the building materials are locally sought as well as labour.

    This will literally benefit over a million people for a hundred years, health services are secondary judged against that.

    Dublin isn't a) densely populated enough or b) large enough to warrant this expenditure at a time like this. It's madness. It's not as if Swords and the airport is completely annexed from the city centre.
