All-Island Strategic Rail Review To Discover Untapped Potential

Construction News Image
The deadline is approaching for submissions regarding the future of the rail network across the whole island of Ireland.

Northern Ireland's Infrastructure Minister Nichola Mallon and Irish Transport Minister Eamon Ryan jointly published a consultation paper on 29 November 2021 to seek feedback from the public and interested stakeholders on how we can shape and develop the rail network across Ireland.

Minister Mallon is calling on members of the public to help shape the review before the consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 21 January 2022.

"Rail travel is an issue I am very passionate about and I believe it has massive untapped potential to deliver multiple benefits across our island," said Minister Mallon. "There are real opportunities for communities across Ireland and significant benefits that better connections could bring not just to people but also for our environment and economy.

"The All-Island Strategic Rail Review will help inform our decision making and investment in our rail network for years to come with the aim of improving it for everyone. In November, along with my colleague in the South, Minister Eamon Ryan, I launched a public consultation to seek views from communities and stakeholders on their vision for the rail network. I would like to thank all those who have responded so far and encourage anyone who has not yet put forward their views to do so before the consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 21 January.

"This is a unique opportunity to shape the future of connectivity across Ireland and I'm looking forward to hearing from communities across our island on what we can do together to deliver lasting change across our country. This is your chance to have your say so please take it."
