Dart underground rail plan lodged

The formal application for the Dart underground rail project in Dublin was lodged with An Bord Pleanála yesterday.

If approved, the Dart underground will deliver a high-capacity rail line through the city centre.

The twin-bore tunnels will connect the northern and Kildare rail lines with underground stations located at Spencer Dock, Pearse, Station, Stephen’s Green, Christchurch and Heuston Station, as well as a surface Dart station at Inchicore.

It is estimated that close to 7,000 people will be employed each year during its proposed construction.
