Waiting for the Metro

Sir, – Ambassador Paolo Serpi very kindly has offered Italian assistance for the completion of Dublin's MetroLink ("Italian ambassador concerned by Dublin MetroLink delay", News, January 20th).

However, I wonder if he has really considered how long major infrastructure projects appear to move in Ireland.

After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day! – Yours, etc,
