Even better: build canals along the road. This will provide more jobs, irrigation, as well as all the advantages you list. It works in the Netherlands.

An especially interesting suggestion given that the road rises from near sea level to c. 800 feet. Think of all the locks and lock keepers required!  There was however a Tram which traversed the route which was closed in 1932. When it comes to public transport, we have been going backwards for a long time.  However the Luas has just been extended to Saggart at the Tallaght end of the Route... and could be extended to the Blessington/Naas area...
