New Car Park At Sallins Train Station Expected To Open In September.

: 06/19/2019 - 15:55

A new car park for Sallins Train Station is expected to open in September.

Discussions between Irish Rail and the Waterways Complex are at an advanced stage.

The site owner is completing some outstanding engineering works at the facility.

Final contractual arrangements are being put in place between Irish Rail and the centre and should be completed soon, with the carpark expected to open in early September.

Kildare North Fianna Fáil TD, James Lawless, sas "A combination of the new direct services into Grand Canal Dock, along with the extension of the short hop zone to Sallins and Naas, while a great benefit to the commuters of the Sallins and Naas area, has attracted increasing amounts of people to the station, putting the existing parking infrastructure under extreme pressure. Commuters are being forced onto earlier and earlier trains in order to secure a parking space and this has knock on consequences on quality of life as well as capacity on train services. Whilst these are problems of success, they are problems nonetheless and need to be tackled".
