dublin port tunnel

dublin port tunnel from 1541 on vimeo.

i finally got to go through dublin port tunnel when i was home just before christmas. i got the front seat upstairs in the bus to heuston station and i was all set for a great show. from an engineering perspective the tunnel is fantastic – but from a design point of view its horrendous. the tunnel ends up looking like a service tunnel. (just because its mostly for truckers doesn’t mean it should be ugly)

although its nice to see dublin planners finally thinking in 3d – its just a shame they didnt think beyond 3d and just moved the port out of the city like they’ve done here in helsinki. (hmm i thought i had posted about the helsinki port project on here but i dont think i have, will have to rectify that.)

all this calm will begin to break in the coming months. in early summer an average of 10-12 40ft long-haul container lorries will pull up to the back door every day, seven days a week for four weeks.

ikea is coming to dublin.
