The Big Lift Means Big Improvements

25 May 2021

A further 22 stations will see lift facilities renewed or upgraded in 2021 as part of a €5.8 million investment

At Iarnród Éireann we are investing in our stations with The Big Lift upgrade. Over the next year we’re making some big changes by replacing and upgrading our lifts.

The Big Lift means big improvements for people with mobility issues. There may be some disruptions now, but this work will provide extra reliable station access for everyone in the future.

Twenty-two stations across the network will have their lifts upgraded by the end of this year, following twelve stations in 2020. But we’re thinking big, with 52 stations across the rail network set for major investment up to 2024.

While we are upgrading, alternative arrangements will be advised for customers of reduced mobility to ensure continued access at stations.
