It is a long term plan of Irish Rail to close the level crossings on the Maynooth line. The attempt to close the Porterstown Road level crossing was a test of the residents’ appetite for such closures. The community was very clear in its objection to that proposal.
We have recently been informed of the details for the proposed closure of the Coolmine level crossing. The proposal includes the building of an invasive bridge between Riverwood Court and Stationcourt. The bridge would destructively transform the quiet Riverwood Court entrance road into a busy route.
We are meeting with public representatives to ask their help in opposing the level crossing closure and new bridge proposal.
