What yo neglected to mention was the abolition of services on the rest of the Limerick Junction – Rosslare Line.
I would have thought, Diaspora, that reopening rural railway lines would support and not hinder rural regeneration.

Platform 11 wants useable rail services on existing lines and new service on lines for which an obvious need exists, as do I. If a huge lump of money is invested in the Western Rail Corridor, the poor return on investment will ensure that no more money is invested in railways outside of Dublin for another fifty years. If the airport metro goes ahead, it’s inevitable final cost of about â‚¬5bn, combined with the ongoing subsidy and poor suitability to its task (think of the tube line to Heathrow), will ensure that no more investment is made in railways in Dublin until oil finally runs out in a hundred years.
I’m sorry Andrew, but you’re talking bullshit, but what’s new.
