The Dublin City Council (DCC) is planning to undertake the metro rail system project in Ireland.
The project involves the construction of a 17km rail system. It includes the construction of platforms, control rooms and parking facility and the installation of safety and security systems and the laying of rail tracks.
It also includes the construction of three railway lines: M1, M2 and M3. The first line M1 will start from St Stephen's Green to the Blanchardstown shopping center, M2 from Malahide to St Stephen's Green, and M3 from Adamstown to the Docklands.
The designs show M2 would start at Malahide Dart station and travel above ground as far as Swords where it would go underground.
Of the total proposed length, it includes the new service utilizing parallel tracks on existing routes. It would include the Phoenix Park tunnel, additional lines into the city from Blanchardstown and Hazelhatch, and links to exiting Luas and national and suburban railways.
In November 2013, project plans were presented to the Transport and Traffic Strategic Policy Committee of Ireland.
In May 2014, Metro Dublin, an engineering consortium, proposed an alternative plan to build a railway line with just 12km underground tunnel needed.
HKR Architect has been appointed as architect and J.B. Barry and Partners Ltd as consulting engineer for the project.
National Transport Authority (NTA) is examining the possible ways to construct the line to reduce the cost. Construction works are expected to commence in 2021 and scheduled for completion by 2025.
