Over 7 miles of track renewed during 2021
Iarnród Éireann has reminded customers that full rail services have resumed on the Limerick to Ballybrophy (via Nenagh) from Monday 6th December, following successful completion of the latest phase of track renewal on the line. Full details of services are available via our journey planner.
In total, 7.5 miles of track was renewed during 2021 in two major phases of works, including the most recent works which commenced on 1st November. The works will facilitate journey time improvements on the line at the next timetable review, planned for the early months of 2022. Continuous welded rail (CWR) on concrete sleepers has replaced old jointed track on timber sleepers, which also enhances safety on the line.
