Govt pushes ahead with ellenbrook rail line, sees potential for profit
The government has been pushing ahead with plans to build an expanded rail line connect출장 안마ing Glencarron, Co Kildare, to Ellenbrook, Co Mayo.
The project would see a four-car rapid line running parallel to the existing line to Cork City, and would also improve connections for commuter services between Dublin and the West Coast.
The Government has made good progress on the first part of the project, but a final decision on the extension has yet to be taken and the State is still considering how best to operate this new train, which would carry up to 3,000 passengers per hour between Dublin and Ellenbrook.
The company that runs the route for RailCorp says it would be viable and profitable for the firm.
RailCorp spokesman Dave McCarthy said: “The company is already in discussions with our customers, local officials and stakeholders on the project.
“We are confident that RailCorp will be able to deliver the necessary investment to enable RailCorp to deliver this project with a solid basis to meet the economic and environmental demands of Ireland’s growing urban population and its growing demand for high speed trains.
“It is not yet clear whether our rail operator will be able to m개츠비 카지노eet its financial commitments and, if the company cannot, we will make that clear to its customer바카라 사이트s, community and stakeholders at an appropriate time.”
