•The proposals contained therein are very early stage proposals in a process of investigation and design. Its assumptions and conclusions form the basis for further assessment and design. As the route has yet to be subject to a design and assessment process, the Feasibility Study is not an appropriate vehicle or basis for public consultation.
•South Dublin County Council and Dublin City Council are currently in the process of conducting the next stage of the project: which is the preliminary design for the route; along with the necessary assessments including environmental assessment.
•Once a preferred route is chosen and subject to the necessary assessments, the route will be subject to the relevant public consultation as set out statutorily.
•The findings within the Dodder Feasibility Study document do not necessarily represent the views of any of the councils listed above.
It is hoped, once the current stage of preliminary design reaches completion (subject to relevant permissions being granted), that the 3 councils will be successful in attracting funding to the detailed design and construction phases of the project. However the phasing of the construction stage is not defined as yet and will be contingent on the allocation of funding and other resources
