Project Overview

Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail (IÉ) operates and maintains a safe rail network on the east coast of Ireland. The Dublin to Wicklow section of this line is a critical part of the rail network, with southside DART, Gorey commuter and Rosslare Europort Intercity services operating along this scenic route.

In recent years IÉ has seen an increase in the frequency of storm events as result of climate change. This necessitates more and more maintenance works to be carried out to respond to the effects of coastal erosion, wave overtopping and coastal flooding on the rail line and supporting infrastructure. These works result in increasing disruption to existing services and may render the line unviable in this area in the future.

In 2017 IÉ undertook a feasibility study to assess the anticipated increase in maintenance requirements for this area resulting from climate change. This study identified several key areas between Dublin and Wicklow where strategic intervention at this time would enable existing rail services to continue to operate with minimal disruption.

The East Coast Railway Infrastructure Protection Projects (ECRIPP) was established to deliver the necessary enhanced coastal protection to the existing railway infrastructure in a number of key locations on this rail network.

ECRIPP will undertake public consultation 1 later in the year on the Emerging Preferred Option for individual Coastal Cell Areas. Feedback on the proposals will be incorporated into further design development to advance the design through to public consultation 2, where we will present the Preferred Option for each CCA. This will culminate with submissions for the necessary statutory consents.

Further detail on ECRIPP and the steps being taken to protect sections of the Dublin to Wicklow rail line can found below.

Project Background

Some sections of the coastal railway south of Dublin to Wicklow are vulnerable to the impacts of coastal erosion, coastal flooding, wave overtopping and cliff instability that is expected to increase both in frequency and severity in future years as a result of climate change. More information on the impact of climate change in Ireland is provided at

The impacts of coastal erosion on the east coast of Ireland from Dublin to County Wicklow are increasingly evident with beaches and cliffs slowly being lost on an annual basis. Iarnród Éireann Irish Rail (IÉ) has first-hand experience of these impacts. This rate of loss will increase in line with sea level rise and storm frequency/intensity increases as a result of climate change. Some areas of the East Coast rail line have seen encroachment through the loss of coast of up to 20-30 metres in the last 10 years alone. This has resulted in large losses in land and habitats, and incursions to such levels that the railway line between Dublin and Wicklow, is vulnerable to further loss due to coastal erosion.

The current east coast rail line is fully operational. ECRIPP will mitigate against coastal erosion, extreme weather and coastal flooding to ensure rail connectivity is maintained. IÉ will continue to undertake maintenance and remedial works in key areas along the east coast rail line.

Key Project Objectives

The primary focus of this project is to address and implement protection of the existing railway and coastal infrastructure against the further effects of coastal erosion due to climate change in five key areas on the railway line between Dublin and Wicklow.

The key objectives of the project include;

  • support the continued safe operation of rail services; 
  • increase railway infrastructure future resilience to climate change;
  • provide improved and sustainable coastal protection works against predicted climate change effects such as sea level rise, coastal erosion, storm surges on the east coast railway corridor;
  • secure the railway line for future generations;
  • allow for the long term efficient management and maintenance of the railway corridor; 
  • support sustainable low carbon local, regional and international connectivity fostering a low carbon and climate resilient society;

Coastal Cell Areas

Five key locations have been assessed as requiring protection to increase resilience to coastal erosion as a result of climate change. These five Coastal Cell Areas (CCA)have been assessed as they have experienced incursions to such levels that existing infrastructure is at risk due to coastal erosion.

These five Coastal Cell Areas are;                                                                 

  • CCA1 - Merrion to Dún Laoghaire 
  • CCA2-3 - Dalkey Tunnel to Killiney station and Killiney South 
  • CCA5 - Bray Head to Greystones North Beach
  • CCA6.1 - Greystones to Newcastle 
  • CCA6.2 - Newcastle to Wicklow Harbour

Where are we now?

We are currently in Phase 2 Project Concept, Feasibility and Option Selection. During this phase the project team is undertook physical assessment and evaluated the environmental constraints of each of the five Coastal Cell Areas. We have developed appropriate measures termed ‘options’ and considered the risks and opportunities associated with each option in terms of addressing coastal erosion.
We have carried out several surveys to inform Phase 2. These surveys covered non-intrusive ecological surveys, topographic surveys, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) surveys and bathymetric surveys. We are also undertaking a ground investigation to inform the design.
Please see link to AA Screening Declaration relating to the ground investigation survey.

Public Consultation 1

Public participation during the design process is a key element in the delivery of ECRIPP. This project has two non-statutory public consultations planned. Public consultation 1 on ECRIPP is due to take place in later in the year on the Emerging Preferred Option for each of the five Coastal Cell Areas (CCA). This public consultation will consider all feedback received to advance the design through to public consultation 2 where we will present the Preferred Option for each CCA.

The capturing of feedback given by stakeholders is critical during the design development process and is a key element of the delivery of ECRIPP. We welcome public feedback during all stages of the design development, where feedback and queries can be submitted through the project e-mail address, or by written correspondence.

If you wish to be added to the project mailing list for project updates, please email

For further details see the Contact Us section. 

Next Steps

The option selection process and design development undertaken to date has led to the development of the Emerging Preferred Option for each Coastal Cell Area and will be the focus of public consultation 1.

Once the public consultation process is complete, all feedback and submissions received will be reviewed and assessed as part of the finalisation of the Preferred Option(s) and design development for public consultation 2.

Following a full appraisal of the feedback, a Consultation Findings Report on -public consultation 1 will be prepared and published to document this process.



Project Funding

Iarnród Éireann is committed to this project to ensure that critical infrastructure is protected and we meet the ambitious long-term national climate change targets and commitment to protect and improve public transportation in line with Iarnród  Éireann’s Strategy.

ECRIPP is funded by the Department of Transport, through the National Transport Authority under Project Ireland 2040. Iarnród Éireann is committed to this project and it is provided for in the Programme for Government and the National Development Plan.

Ultimately all projects are dependent on Exchequer funding for financing. Subject to receipt of planning permission approval and approval of the Business Case by Government, the project will go ahead.

Project Sponsors

ECRIPP is being implemented by Iarnród Éireann as part of Project Ireland 2040 and the National Development Programme.
