Following Mary’s request to the NTA that a new DART stop for Cabra be included in the DART+ South West project plans, Iarnród Éireann has appointed AtkinsRéalis to develop location options and designs for a possible stop at Cabra. AtkinsRéalis will now undertake feasibility and option selection studies for a possible new train station proposed at Cabra which will integrate with the city’s rail network, including the DART+ South West project.
Preferred options are expected to emerge towards the end of 2024. A decision on the progress of these projects will be made by the National Transport Authority and will be subject to funding allocation.
The DART+ Programme is being implemented by Iarnród Éireann as part of Project Ireland 2040 and the NTA’s Transport Strategy for the Greater Dublin Area (2016-2035). The DART+ South West project aims to commence commercial service in 2029, further to completion of construction works, testing and commissioning, which are subject to the availability of funding.
