Call for new Dublin train station to service the development of 40,000 homes

The proposed new City Edge development of 40,000 homes on Dublin’s Naas Road could be five minutes from Heuston station and 10 minutes to the city center by train if there is investment in new rail infrastructure, a conference has heard.

Mick Mulhern, chief planning officer for South Dublin County Council, said significant investment in public transport was needed to unlock the potential of the 700-hectare site that could provide enough homes for up to 85,000 people and 75,000 jobs.

Speaking at a conference in Dublin on the City Edge project, Mulhern said a new train station was needed, which could become a major rail junction « similar to Kings Cross » in London as well as the new Loas station.

Irish Rail has already planned to expand services to the west of the city under the Dart+ programme, but Mr Mulhern said there was no downtime in the site’s service. The project proposes a stop at Kylemore, south of Ballyfermot.

« We’re looking forward to a new railroad intersection at that station that will stop there 15 trains an hour in both directions, bringing you to Houston in five minutes and to Connolly and downtown in about 10 to 12 minutes, » he said.
