6.4 Billion? They may as well get a big bonfire going and burn the money.
I guarantee in a few years time we will be reading about how the money was poorly managed and wasted on badly negotiated tenders and silly unnescessary projects.
But its grand when its other peoples money, sure when it all goes wrong, they’ll just tax us heavier.
Why are they spending more money on roads? Is there actually going to be any significant economic benefit? Isnt our road network already sufficient to attract the multinationals that we want to come to Ireland for jobs?
