Cork Line Level Crossings Project

Project Overview

Iarnród Éireann is undertaking the Cork Line Level Crossings Project to identify the best approach to
removing/upgrading seven level crossings located along the main Cork to Dublin line. These level
crossings are being removed/upgraded to provide a safer environment for those living near the rail line
and a more efficient service for all Iarnród Éireann customers.

There are currently seven manned public road level crossings in operation on the Cork to Dublin line
between Limerick Junction and Mallow stations in Counties Cork and Limerick. The crossings are
located within a 24km section of the line between the Cork and Limerick county boundary.

The crossings are located at Fantstown, Thomastown, Ballyhay, Newtown, Ballycoskery, Shinanagh
and Buttevant.

Project Consultation Roadmap

Members of the public, interested stakeholders, landowners and prescribed bodies are being invited
to contribute to the development of the Cork Line Level Crossings Project through public consultation
and engagement at keys stages, as outlined in the Cork Line Level Crossings Public Consultation
Roadmap below.

each of the seven level crossings. We are seeking feedback on the Preliminary Design Report and
Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Screening and Scoping Report and any other comments or

Public consultation will be undertaken for ten weeks from Tuesday 12 November 2019 until Tuesday

attributed to them. Submissions will not be individually responded to but will be summarised in a
consultation report which will be published on

Pleanála for its independent assessment in 2020.
