Rail Projects Delayed Under Updated Transport Strategy

Dublin’s MetroLink won’t be operational until at least 2031.

This 20 year-plan will run until 2042 and sets out proposals for improving cycling, walking, buses, the road network and rail services in the Greater Dublin area.

Under it the MetroLink, as well as Luas lines to Finglas, Lucan, Poolbeg and Bray won’t be delivered until after 2031, during the second phase of the strategy.

While the Dart underground, linking Heuston Station with the Docklands, has been removed from the plan.

Originally due to cost €10 billion – that’s increased to 25 billion.

Meanwhile designs are to be put together for 8 luas extensions or new lines that would be ready to be built after the strategy ends in 20 years time.

Public consultation on the draft strategy will run until December 17th.
