      The Future of Transport in Dublin

      The face of transportation in Dublin is set to change dramatically over the next number of years after the government recently confirmed that some €5.7 billion will be provided for two critical infrastructure projects; the Metro North and the Dart Underground. It is hoped that these two projects will finally enable people to shift from private to public transport and free future generations from the gridlock that cripples the greater Dublin area today.

      Mr Michael Philips will discuss the impact of these projects along with the continued work that is being carried out on the capital’s road and rail network in the RDS on Thursday, September 30, 2010 at 7.00pm

      Mr Michael Philips has been Dublin City Engineer since 1998 and also Director of Traffic since 2006. These roles involve the development and implementation of strategies for all engineering infrastructure to meet the needs of the city and the region. Some projects undertaken during this period include the Dublin Port Tunnel, Dublin Bay Wastewater Treatment Works and Quality Bus Corridors. Currently coordination of Transport 21 projects and the promotion of sustainable modes of transport are the main focus to achieving a successful mobility policy in the Dublin Region.
