  241. Mr. Gogarty asked the Minister for Transport the timeframes and routes for the operation of a Metro serving Liffey Valley shopping centre, Lucan and Clondalkin as indicated in the Transport 21 plan. [40119/05]

  Mr. Cullen: Transport 21 includes a metro line — metro west — linking Tallaght with Clondalkin, Blanchardstown and Ballymun. It is expected that metro west will be completed in phases between 2010 and 2014. The detailed planning work, public consultation and the statutory approval process will determine the precise route that the metro line will take.
