Fitzgerald Welcomes Additional Train Services from Newcastle and Adamstown Stations

Local TD and Tánaiste, Frances Fitzgerald has today welcomed additional services between Hazelhatch Station, Adamstown and the City Centre.

“I am delighted with today’s announcement by Iarnród Éireann that new commuter services will run from Hazelhatch and Adamstown to the City Centre via the Phoenix Park Tunnel line. These additional services will commence on Monday 21st November," Fitzgerald commented.

“I have continuously been a supporter of the need to reopen the Phoenix Park tunnel to benefit commuters travelling direct to the city centre and docklands.  I am pleased that the National Transport Authority provided €13.7million in funding for the upgrading of the Tunnel route.

“I highlighted the need for additional services from Hazelhatch and Adamstown to the City Centre in Iarnród Éireann’s recent public consultation. From speaking to residents, I know that these additional routes will be an advantage for commuters in both the Lucan and Newcastle areas.”
