National Transport Authority to publish Metrolink route in March
The original planned route

A revised route for the Dublin MetroLink rail line will be published within weeks.

It follows calls for the line to run out towards Rathfarnham instead of Sandyford on the south side.

Last week Fingal County Council called on the National Transport Authority to build the north side section of the MetroLink independently of the south side leg.

Also, South Dublin County Council have called for the line to be diverted to Rathfarnham instead of running to Sandyford.

Transport authorities had been due to announce the redesigned route of the line last August, but postponed their decision.

The Irish Times reports that the NTA will now publish the revised route in early March.
