I told you so

Okay, not you, but there's at least one man in Dublin (assuming he's still alive) who I told in 1993. I told him that the decision to build a two lane each direction M50 was a disaster. At the time I said it should have been at least three lanes each way, but now four looks like the minimum required. He argued that Dublin would never need a road that big.

Anyway, today it's a 'car park' for '12 hours a day'. Just so I can say 'I told you so' again (but I'll be one among the many this time), six lanes will be totally insufficient even when the new and improved road is finished in 2011. We need eight lanes on the M50 and another 6 lane ring road further out.
