The nations capital Dublin is always expanding, and according to the chairman of the Housing Agency a massive €34bn is needed to develop the region surrounding Dublin over the next 35 years.
The chairman Dr Conor Skehan, claims any proposed future projects in the capital and it’s surrounding areas must be constructed with a “think big” attitude. Dr Skegan’s comments come as all future ideas for Dublin up to 2050 will be discussed at an upcoming event later.
Dr Skehan told reporters that current plans for Dublin city and its surrounds were not ambitious enough. Dr Skehan further explained: “We’re going to continue to grow and deal with problems as they arise, and that means we’ll just do things like add another lane or a few more junctions to the M50 and probably in 10 years time, build another M50 10 kms outside of that.”
“That’s not going to be the way we make this place work. We’ve got to have big, bold visions. We’ve to spend a lot of money every year for the next 35 years getting ready for that much bigger city.”
