Key Infrastructural Elements

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

  • Completion of four tracking 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.
  • Delivery of a new Heuston West Station.

The ‘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.
