Mitchell urges Strategic Rail Plan to improve Wicklow Line

The Wicklow Rail line to Kilcoole and Wicklow Town provides the worst service of any in the Greater Dublin Area. There are only 2 trains at rush hour, both short. I see that a Strategic Plan is to come before Cabinet, I am urging that a proper Plan is produced for these fast expanding towns. It makes more sense to get existing lines to work than to dream about lots of new lines in less populated places.

There has been publicity about battery operated DARTs but no suggested Plan or schedules. It is difficult to arrange a frequent service on the single line track and a Plan is needed. In 2018 I produced a Plan to provide 3 rush hour services with longer trains but this seemed to get rejected. The Strategic Plan must include a Wicklow rail improvement plan.
