Land­slides leave rail com­muters stranded

Bray People - - News -

TWO LAND­SLIDES which have put the brakes on the Wex­ford to Dublin train ser­vice were con­demned at last Mon­day’s meet­ing of Wick­low County Coun­cil.

Cllr. Ge­orge Jones said that the rock-fall on the Bray to Grey­stones line and a land­slide close to Ark­low had left the en­tire re­gion without a train ser­vice to Dublin and said there seemed to be no ur­gency on the part of Iarn­rod Eire­ann to get the rail ser­vice up and run­ning again.

‘The rock-fall could have been cleaned up within a week.

‘There might have been a bit of work needed to se­cure it but it would have been open. On the day af­ter the rock-fall be­tween Bray and Grey­stones the trains were run­ning.

‘The Ross­lare to Dublin rail ser­vice is the most un­der­funded line in the coun­try’, he fumed.
