Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ) has submitted a railway order application to An Bord Pleanála for the DART+ West project.
Further information and documentation in connection with the railway order application, including how you can make a submission, is available at https://www.dartplus.ie/en-ie/railwayorder/dartwest.
As the first phase of the DART+ programme to go to the railway order process, this is a significant milestone in improving Dublin's rail network. As with any public transport project, we expect that this application will be met with vocal opposition from some quarters, so it is essential that voices in support of sustainable transport are heard as part of the planning process.
Members of the public can make submissions to An Bord Pleanála in connection with the application before the extended deadline of 5:30pm on Friday 28 October 2022.
Dublin Commuter Coalition is preparing a submission in support of the application on behalf of its members.
How can you help?
We encourage our members to contribute to Dublin Commuter Coalition's submission to An Bord Pleanála. You can do this by sending us your thoughts, or by contributing to our draft submission document directly on our Microsoft Teams workspace. Please contact us if you would like to assist with this and do not already have access to the document.
If you can, we also encourage you to make a submission in support of the scheme to An Bord Pleanála in your own capacity - however that a €50 fee applies.
