Key Infrastructural Elements

The key infrastructural elements of the DART+ West project includes:

  • Electrification and re-signalling of the Maynooth and M3 Parkway lines (approximately 40km in length).
  • Capacity enhancements at Connolly Station (to include modifications to junctions and the station) to facilitate increased train and passenger numbers.
  • Provision of a new Spencer Dock Station, which will better serve the north Docklands area and improve interchange with the Luas.
  • Closure of level crossings and provision of replacement bridges where required.
  • Construction of a new DART depot facility west of Maynooth for the maintenance and parking (stabling) of trains.
  • Interventions at existing bridges over the rail line where there are insufficient clearances for the overhead electrification equipment.
  • Substations, electrical buildings and all other civil and ancillary works as necessary to accommodate the project.
