Revised National Development Plan: Discussion
Why did TII decide to tick the box between €1 billion and €3 billion rather than less than €1 billion? When I did a very rough calculation that even if we go with €10 million per kilometre, that is about €800 million. If we were to upgrade the road link from Limerick Junction to Limerick city, it would be about €60 million. That is about €860 million. If we take that from €1 billion, we still have head room of somewhere between 20% and 25% of an increase so why did TII tick the box €1 billion or above?
