Rail ser­vices rocked

Bray People - - News Focus -

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.
