Joint Oireachtas Committee on Transport, Tourism and Sport

Revised National Development Plan: Discussion

Mr. Hugh Creegan:

The rail link to Shannon will be part of the revised Limerick-Shannon transport strategy and consultation will start on this in January. It is still in its embryonic stages, however. We have enough work done to understand how it could be built, but we do not have an alignment or any of that detail. It may not need to be a twin track. It may be sufficient to have a single-track line and have passing loops at the stations. That level of detail, however, is all to follow. At this stage, what we have is a strategy concept and that is as far as development has gone. The proposal must emerge as an individual project later for much more forensic development.
