Riverwood Court bridge scrapped

We received an update from our local councillors and TDS that Irish Rail are not proceeding with a bridge into Riverwood Court as part of Dart+ West project.

Following the completion of a full multi-criteria analysis, the new preferred option for the Coolmine consists of:

  • The permanent closure of Coolmine level crossing.
  • Provision of a pedestrian & cyclist bridge at Coolmine Station, linking Coolmine Road to Carpenterstown Road.
  • As an alternative to the provision of a new vehicular bridge, the existing road network will be upgraded, and vehicular traffic re-routed to utilise the existing railway crossing points at Diswellstown Viaduct (Dr Troy Bridge) and Castleknock Bridge.

Irish Rail are planning a consultation on their revised proposals sometime in mid to late June.
