Planning application for Dart+ West to be lodged ‘later this summer’

July 14, 2022

A PLANNING APPLICATION for the Dart+ West expansion is set to be formally submitted later this summer, after the consultation period for the project ended.

The proposal for Dart+ West, which was approved by the Government in December, would see infrastructure improvements to Connolly Station and Dublin’s Docklands alongside improved rail links to Maynooth.

Under the plan, a new station would be built at Spencer Dock as well as a new access point to Connolly Station from Preston Street.

A spokesperson for Iarnród Éireann confirmed to The Journal that a so-called ‘railway order’ planning application would be filed to An Bord Pleanála “later this summer”.
