I live near one of the level crossings, how will I get to and from my home?
Iarnród Éireann is endeavouring to minimise any potential impacts to communities along the line. However, due to the projected increase in services, level crossings along the route will be untenable as the gates would be down to such an extent that certain communities would be completely locked in. As part of the project we are proposing to construct alternative vehicular bridges at Ashtown (via an underpass), Coolmine (road overbridge and a separate pedestrian and cycle bridge) and Barberstown (overbridge). There will be pedestrian and cycle bridges constructed at Clonsilla and Porterstown. No alternative access is currently planned at Blakestown. For more details of the proposed plan for each location, please see the project website. The alternative infrastructure new bridge crossings will be available for use and only then will the level crossing be closed. This is to ensure continued connectivity for communities north and south of the railway corridor.
