Rail services rocked
HUNDREDS of commuters who travel on trains between Bray and Greystones and as far as Rosslare will be disrupted for several weeks after rocks fell at Bray Head on Monday.
While the rocks did not fall right on to the line itself, loose rubble is being held back by netting which Irish Rail say could loosen and tumble on to the track at any moment. The rocks have been described as ‘suspended’ over the track.
The slippage occurred around the entrance to the first tunnel on Bray Head on Monday at around midday. Barry Kenny of Irish Rail said that the cliff face must be assessed before removal work can begin and the route will indefinitely.
Passengers travelling to Greystones and further afield were transferred to buses to continue their journeys.
DART services to Greystones, Gorey commuter services and Rosslare Intercity services will not return to normal until at least the end of next week according to an Iarnrod Eireann statement.
