Well praise feckin' be - solid plans for the long awaited Metro North have finally been revealed.

Running from Swords to Stephen's Green, work on the Metro North will begin in 2021 and is expected to be open for business in 2027.

The Irish Independent reports that the government announced a €7.5 billion transport programme that will include a complete redesign of the city's bus network, and new walking and cycling facilities.

The Metro North will travel underground for the majority of the route, stopping at St.Stephen's Green, O'Connell Street, Mater, Drumcondra, Griffith Avenue, with elevated tracks for DCU, Ballymun, Dardistown and Northwood.

The Metro will then swoop back underground to stop off at the airport, before coming back up for stops at Fosterstown, Swords Central, Seatown and the Estuary.
