Dart Upgrade To Cost €600m Extra

Plans to upgrade the Dart line – including, of course, the Greystones to Bray line – may now cost €600m more than expected.

With the work due to be completed by 2027, the original estimated cost under the National Development Plan was €2bn.

According to a report by The Irish Times today, Irish Rail now believes that the total cost will be more than €2.6bn.

A major part of the Dart upgrade is expanding the frequency of rail services between Bray and Greystones, with the engineering works on this coastal route along Bray Head expected to be both extensive and expensive.

Other part of the new plans include expanding the electrified rail services from Dublin to Drogheda, Maynooth and Celbridge.

In the meantime, wonder if there are any ferry services up for taking Greystones on…?
