C 82/58 EN Official Journal of the European Communities 17. 3.


It may be noted that, before the formal procedure, the project planning was also marked by a phase of public
consultation. A discussion document prepared by the project team and their consultants set out five possible
alternative routes between Bluebell and Heuston Station, with a comparative socio-economic engineering and
environmental examination of each option. Using a multicriteria analysis and taking into account submissions
received from interested parties and locally held meetings, the routing now proposed was chosen.

In view of the foregoing, the Commission does not at present consider it appropriate to address the Irish
authorities on the specific matters mentioned. The Honourable Member is advised to use the procedures provided
at national level to make a full submission to the national authorities.
