Rail City centre re-signalling project


The Action is located on the pre-identified section Corcaigh/Cork-Dublin–Baile Átha Cliath/Belfast of the Core Network Corridor North Sea-Mediterranean and addresses the objectives and priorities of TEN-T policy and of the CEF call.


It aims at upgrading rail services within the Greater Dublin Area to eliminate the capacity bottleneck through the city-centre and along the Dublin-Belfast (Ireland/UK) crossborder service. The existing signaling system in Dublin is outdated and is not capable of meeting the requirements for increased train frequencies required to meet the needs of existing rail traffic and further future increases to be delivered as part of the DART Underground Programme. The Action includes several activities related to signalling, electrification and telecoms installation, civil works and track installations.
