That is fine. Turning to the rail project that has been mentioned in conjunction with the Limerick regional plans, that of a rail link spur from the Limerick-Ennis line to Shannon Airport, that project has also been around for some time. I ask some of our guests to enlighten us some more about the specifics of that project. A report compiled 17 or 18 years ago examined what would be required to make such an undertaking viable and it found that a dual-track section of line would need to be constructed on part of the existing line to allow for the necessary frequency of trains. I would like more details on that aspect. Similar to my query on the road project, I would like an indicative timeline for when this rail work will commence and the envisaged time to completion.
