Relief as trains to get back on track
RELIEF is at last in sight for thousands of commuters forced on to the buses because of a rockfall above the train line between Bray and Greystones.
Irish Rail said The Dart service could be back in action between the towns by tomorrow, two-and-half-weeks since it was halted.
The line has been closed since the rockall incident on February 2, and thousands of commuters have suffered disruption since, with would-be Dart passengers transferred on to buses.
There were complaints from a number of sources, including Cllrs. Derek Mitchell and George Jones, who accused Irish Rail of being slow to react. It was over a week before repairs to the line began.
The rocks did not fall right on to the line but loose rubble was being held back by netting which officials said could fall on to the track at any moment.
The rock fall happened near the entrance to the first tunnel on Bray Head.
