    the future

    might be better than the new bus lanes proposed for Dublin. Think of all the gardens which would be saved !

    Plywood Plywood and more Plywood

    It is the nature of plywood that it will warp of it's own accord if not well supported/fixed For some years I have been using ply on flat roofs where it is expected to survive at least 30 years. We always regarded 416mm as the maximum safe span for 18mm ply. So I am not surprised at the 9mm cupping. The " hardwood" ply sold here in Ireland is visually very pleasing but now has a bad reputation in the roofing trade because it tends to delaminate . The birch is usually very good quality ( especially the scandinavian ones ) but it still needs to be well supported/fixed

    Luas Breakdown

    A very good post . the current problems in the city centre show the great weakness of tramways - they have to share the road space with other users. A proper underground system will always be difficult and expensive to build but worth having .

    Luas Breakdown

    the port tunnel was built to allow HGVs easy and quick access to the port . same could be done for commuters et al. Money is not the problem.

    Luas Breakdown

    The LUAS is the poor man's metro . Dublin needs a proper underground railway . The port tunnel shows there would be no problem building it.

    Painting baseboards

    chances are , the adhesion between the PVA and the paint would be more than enough for the cork and or ballast. After all , there is very little load on it .
