 West on Track welcomes Government announcement of Re-Opening of Western Rail Corridor
This is a far-sighted and historic decision and the Government are to be commended for their vision in bringing forward what will be the largest re-opening of railway infrastructure in the history of the state.
The Government's decision is a vote of confidence in the future of the West of Ireland, whose public transport budget as part of the National Development Plan, had fallen seriously behind.
It is clearly the case that the Western Rail Corridor is one of the few projects listed today where work could commence immediately, unhindered by planning or other requirements and given the proven relaying capacity of Iarnród Éireann we are confident that the project can still be delivered significantly sooner than mooted.
