Bring back the Dublin & Blessington tram

Local politics is always a goldmine for crazy suggestions that will never see the light of day. This call, reported on the Kildare Now website is no exception, with a councillor calling for the LUAS to be extended to Blessington, Co. Wicklow.

I would suggest a far better use of State resources would be a 3km extension of the DART+ WEST plan from the depot at One Mile Short to a new station west of Kilcock, near to the Musgraves depot, where this would also serve as a park & ride for car traffic off the M4.
