An Board Plenála Statutory Consultation for the DART+ South West Railway Order application is now closed


The Railway Order application for DART+ South West was submitted to An Board Plenála on 22nd March and the statutory consultation period is now closed, as of 16th May. 

The application for a Railway Order for DART+ South West seeks permission to extend the electrified DART network from Hazelhatch and Celbridge to Heuston Station and the South city via Phoenix Park Tunnel. Following the DART+ West Railway Order (Maynooth/M3 Parkway to Dublin) being lodged with An Bord Pleanála in July 2022, DART+ South West is the second line in the DART+ Programme to reach this stage. 

An Bord Pleanála, at its discretion, can conduct an oral hearing as part of the Railway Order application process, to provide the public with further participation in the decision-making process for this project. At an oral hearing the DART+ South West project team will provide responses to submissions and will be available for questioning.
