From the NTA:
Quote:
Minister Donohoe & National Transport Authority announce shortlist of project options to address future transport needs in Fingal/North Dublin

08/12/14

Public views on 6 shortlisted options sought by January 19th

As part of a review of future transport needs in Fingal/North Dublin, the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Paschal Donohoe TD, today (Monday) announced a short-list of six project options to serve one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, encompassing Swords and Dublin Airport.

The six proposed options are:

Two heavy rail options:
  • A DART link from Clongriffin to the airport and Swords (Option HR2);
  • A DART link from the Maynooth Railway Line to the airport and Swords via a tunnel under Glasnevin (Option HR8);

Two Luas/metro options:
  • A Luas line from Cabra to the airport and Swords via a tunnel under Glasnevin (Option LR3);
  • A metro proposal from St. Stephen’s Green to the Airport and Swords (Option LR7);

One Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Option:
  • A combination of a number of proposed Bus Rapid Transit services (Option BRT 5); and

One Combination Option:
  • A combination of a DART link from Clongriffin to the airport and a Luas line from Cabra to Swords (Option C1).

Population and employment growth in Fingal/North Dublin will stimulate increased travel across the region over the medium term that cannot be catered for by car. Extra public transport capacity will be required, supplemented by cycling and walking for shorter journeys.

Earlier in 2014, following a public procurement process, the National Transport Authority appointed Aecom, a firm specialising in transport engineering, to identify optimum medium term / long term public transport solutions in the Fingal / North Dublin area. As part of the initial stage of the review, a total of 25 public transport scheme options were identified and proposed for initial evaluation, including:
  • 10 Heavy Rail options;
  • 8 Light Rail options;
  • 5 BRT options; and
  • 2 options combining different transport modes.
All of those 25 proposals were reviewed and assessed, including consideration of technical feasibility, cost and environmental issues, following which the six shortlisted schemes have been proposed for further design development and more detailed evaluation. This next stage will include:
  • Technical development of the options, both engineering design and operational parameters;
  • More detailed costing and environmental assessment;
  • Transport modelling to assess likely usage; and
  • Cost benefit analysis.
Full details of the 25 options and the six shortlisted options are published today on www.nationaltransport.ie, and members of the public are invited to review the material and submit their views and opinions before the consultation closes at 5:00pm on Monday, January 19th 2015.

Submissions will be considered by the National Transport Authority team as part of their on-going work to identify a preferred option. This preferred option will then be included in the Authority’s overall Greater Dublin Area Strategy plan, which will be presented to Minister Donohoe in June of next year, for his consideration and decision.

Speaking today, Minister Donohoe said: ‘The Fingal area is one of the fastest growing areas in the country. In Census 2011 it registered the third-highest growth rate in the country at 13.9%; close to four times the population growth of Dublin city and almost double that of other Dublin county council areas. Failure to put appropriate plans in place now to meet the long-term transport needs of this area, will mean increased congestion down the line which will ultimately threaten our future economic development.

“The overall objective of this study, the first stage of which is being launched today, is to identify the appropriate public transport solution to serve the medium to long-term needs of the Swords / Dublin Airport to City Centre corridor. The shortlist of six options has been identified following engagement with stakeholders. I urge people to make their views known, through the NTA, so that they can be considered as we move to the next stage and an optimum public transport solution for the Greater North Dublin area”.

Gerry Murphy, CEO of the National Transport Authority said: “We need to plan well ahead for an area of Dublin that has grown greatly in the last decade and which will continue to grow due to increasing population and greater economic activity. We have carried out a very comprehensive exercise in looking at a wide spectrum of project options and we will now evaluate the most appropriate 6 projects in even greater detail. The objective is to find the project that best meets the needs on a value for money basis of such an important area of the Dublin region. I encourage everyone with an interest in this area to take a look at the proposal details on our website, and to make their views known to us before the deadline of January 19th.”
And the options are:

One of the streets in Dublin closed for 6 months with other, allowing to begin Cross City line construction on Dawson and Nassau St:

In a way it would be best if they left it closed. The Street has benefited from high profile retailers in recent years such as Super Dry and now H&M ( the gleaming beacon at the end of the street in the picture). Infra works and then track will see disruption for a couple of years, people get used to change and will adapt, leave it closed and draw in more retail and restaurants to the area.

IE mulls Dublin Airport rail link
Monday, January 26, 2015



IRISH Rail (IE) has confirmed it is developing proposals for a direct rail link to Dublin Airport, which would be served by direct Intercity services to Cork, Galway, and Belfast

In an interview with the Irish Independent newspaper on January 26, IE CEO Mr David Franks said the project, which is already being considered by the Department of Transport, would involve constructing a branch running west from a junction with the Dublin – Drogheda – Belfast line at Clongriffin. In a second phase, the line could be extended north to serve the suburb of Swords before continuing northeast to rejoin the Dublin – Belfast Line

Grade separation of Ratoath Road level crossing in North Dublin, serving for Iarnród Éireann and DART services, is almost complete, opening should be soon. This means reducing number of fatalities:

Old bridges will be gone after completion of new one. And these barriers are stand in its place until passing the train. Then gates are moved to close the road
