The Greater Dublin Area Transport Strategy has been published after much consultation by the National Transport Authority. The main Wicklow items with target dates are:
Enhancing the level of DART service to Greystones as part of DART+ South. This is to be done by partially double tracking the line as recommended in my plan of 2018 and validated by a subsequent Jacobs Study. Consultation was to have been done in 2022 but has been delayed to 2023. Implementation is before 2030.
Providing electrified train services to Wicklow Town, Nass/Sallins & Kilcock listed for 2037 to 2042.
Luas to Bray which is listed as from 2031 to 2036. A new line from town to UCD & Sandyford to reduce congestion on the Green Line is listed for Phase 2 for implementation after 2042.
Park n’ Ride sites at Fassaroe, Kilpeddar & Ashford based on bus services on the N11 are to be started before 2030. Also better bus services on the N11 & N81.
I welcome these improvements but don’t want to see any further slippage in the timetable for Greystones DART+ and Luas to Bray.
