A Dublin train station that was constructed in 2009 but never used is finally scheduled to open this year, according to Irish Rail.
The Clondalkin/Fonthill and Adamstown stations are separated by Kishoge Station, which is expected to cost €6.35 million to build and will reportedly open to the public in December 2023.
Irish Rail has stated that “major improvements” are required to open the station in the meantime.
This includes “applying new materials which experience from other stations has shown… to be better suited to a commuter station environment,” “meeting current accessibility and systems requirements,” and “replacement and repairs associated with wear and tear, vandalism, and other degradation over time.”
It is reported that the cost of this investment will total €3.8 million and that the opening of the station will give a “rapid and regular service” to both Heuston Station and, via the Phoenix Park Tunnel, to all stations between Connolly and Grand Canal Dock.
