A masterplan for Dublin's Heuston Station and surrounding areas is to include an emphasis on bikes and other modes of transport, but not cars.
The holding company for Irish Rail and Dublin Bus is launching the new plan for the development of 10 hectares of land next to the station.
The Heuston Masterplan will see lands encompassing both Heuston Station and Cunningham Road developed for multi-use - including over 1,000 residential units.
There are also plans for commercial, retail and leisure deployments.
It also envisions the construction of two new bridges across the River Liffey for cyclists and pedestrians.
And as part of the plan, a new DART station at Heuston West will bring services to outer-suburban areas and onwards through the Phoenix Park Tunnel.
Lorcan O'Connor is the group chief executive of Córas Iompair Éireann (CIE).
He told The Pat Kenny Show they want to make room for other modes of transport.
"We do see the Heuston Masterplan also being an opportunity for a significant shift in cycling provision.
"We envisage providing 5,000 bicycle park spaces in Heuston Station - that's of a scale that is unheard of in an Irish context.
"It does reflect best practice from some of our European countries.
"What that will offer is easy access to people who use the train services into Heuston to do that last mile journey - or indeed, for those living or working in the new development.
"What we can show is, pretty much, a 15 minute cycle from Heuston Station gets you to anywhere in the city centre.
"Dublin City Council are also building the off-road cycle track along The Quays."
He says this is the perfect example of going car-free.
"What we're proposing today is a largely car-free development - so it's absolutely with E-scooters in mind, active travel options in mind - be it walking, cycling and public transport.
"It's anything but the car.
"To provide for anything else on this site I think would be a dereliction of our duty.
"If you cannot have a largely car-free development at Heuston Station, I don't know where you can."
It will now move to the development stage, with plans to appoint a joint-venture developer next spring.
And Mr O'Connor says a planning permission application is to be developed "within a year" of that date - taking it to 2023.
They will also be working with local communities and others, however it is expected the development will take up to 15 years to complete.
