Key Infrastructural Elements

The key infrastructural elements of the DART+ South West Project includes:

  • Completion of four tracking, widening the rail corridor, from Park West & Cherry Orchard Station to Heuston Station, extending the works completed on the route in 2009.
  • Electrification and re-signalling of the line from Hazelhatch & Celbridge Station to Heuston Station and also from Heuston Station to Glasnevin, via the Phoenix Park Tunnel Branch Line, where it will link with the proposed DART+ West.
  • Undertaking improvements/reconstructions of bridges to facilitate movement of electrified train services.
  • Remove rail constraints along the Phoenix Park Tunnel Branch Line.
  • Feasibility report and concept design for a potential new Heuston West Station.

The ‘Emerging Preferred Option’ will be compatible with future stations at Kylemore and Cabra, although the construction of these stations is not part of the DART+ South West Project.
