Translink Enterprise rail services between Drogheda and Dublin disrupted by engineering works

If you are visiting Dublin for a weekend, your trip will be impacted by planned engineering works between Drogheda and Dublin.

Irish Rail have announced rail improvements are due to take place between Drogheda & Howth and Howth Junction & Donaghmede stations on Saturday June 11.

Bus substitution services will be in place.

Irish Rail said: “While the vast majority of work takes place overnight, or in a way that causes little or no disruption to services, in some cases disruption is unavoidable. This will occur if we replace or improve essential infrastructure such as roads, bridges, signals, overhead lines, or assist third parties with major projects.

“We therefore need to plan for this work to bring improvements to our customers, but there may also be unavoidable disruptions. We strive to minimize this disruption and also minimize the number of customers affected.”

Enterprise services between Belfast and Drogheda will not be affected by the engineering works.

Bus substitution services to transfer passengers from Drogheda to Dublin Connolly station have been arranged.

Bus transfers will also be in place for passengers traveling between Dublin Connolly Station and Drogheda.

Replacement buses will leave Dublin Connolly at published train times, with a revised timetable operating between Drogheda and Belfast Lanyon Place Station.

Passengers are advised to allow extra time at Dublin Connolly Station for their return journey.

Full timetable information is available on the Translink website.
