Update on DART service this Bank Holiday Weekend

03 May 2012

As an update to our story yesterday regarding the cancellation of all Northside DART services over the forthcoming Bank Holiday Weekend, dueDart logo to large public outcry, Irish Rail have now agreed to defer works and operate a normal public holiday service.

In a statement on their website, Irish Rail explain their new course of action as..."Recognising the concerns of businesses and tourism, the works are being postponed, and the schedule for commissioning of the new signalling is being reexamined.  Priorities will be to minimise disruption, minimise costs and meet commissioning process requirements.  A new schedule for these works will be confirmed in due course."

At loveclontarf.ie we welcome this decision.  The resumption of the DART service on the Bank Holiday will result in a less congested North Dublin Bay area, making it more enjoyable for locals and visitors alike.
