Ir­ish Rail ‘sorry’ for cramped car­riages

Bray People - - Bray People -

IR­ISH RAIL ad­mit that Wick­low com­muters us­ing the Ross­lare to Dublin line had to con­tend with four car­riages rather than usual six due to main­te­nance is­sues.

Over the last few weeks reg­u­lar morn­ing users of the ser­vice com­plained that it had once again been down­graded from a six car­riage ser­vice to four.

This led to ac­cu­sa­tions of over­crowded car­riages and cus­tomers faint­ing be­cause of the packed con­di­tions.

Now Ir­ish Rail have apol­o­gised for the in­con­ve­nience and in­sist that ev­ery­thing is back up and run­ning as it should be.

Ac­cord­ing to an Ir­ish Rail spokesper­son, ‘there were some is­sues with the Ross­lare to Dublin ser­vice that would have af­fected Wick­low as well.

‘We had some main­te­nance prob­lems and that had a knock on af­fect on other ser­vices as well.

‘Now ev­ery­thing is back up and run­ning and the ser­vice from Wick­low to Dublin is back up to its full quota of car­riages since last Mon­day.’
