I will ask a simple question which has a complex answer. Do Mr. Walsh and Ms Graham think we will see the Cork metropolitan area transport strategy in our lifetime? We are committed to light rail and to a public transport system that is integrated. We recognise the complexities of public transport provision in the case of Cork. Yet the number of bus journeys, as we heard this week, is quite small. This goes back to my earlier point. We all support and advocate for the vision and principles around integrated transport, the modal shift and offering better public transport. My question is in the context of light rail for Cork; will we see that?
