Project's description

The origin of the MetroLink Scheme Project finds its roots in a social observation, stating that by 2030, 60 percent of the world’s population will live in cities.

The MetroLink Scheme will be formed by a 19-km north-south urban railway route, that will link Swords to Dublin’s city centre (Charlemont) in 25 minutes, and the city centre to Dublin Airport in 20 minutes, by mostly running underground (single bore tunnel). The MetroLink Scheme will be fully automatic (GoA 4) and will include 15 stations.
