Dart Users On Northside May Have to Switch Trains Mid-Journey

Dart users on Dublin's northside are facing major changes to their daily commute.

They may have to switch trains during their journies, as part of plans to extend the Dart line.

Irish Rail has plans to extend the Dart line from Dublin out to Drogheda, Celbridge and Maynooth at a cost of 2.6 billion euro.

It also plans to introduce more trains on the service.

But in order for this to happen, Irish Rail is proposing some trains from Howth could run as feeder services to Howth Junction so passengers would have to change trains to continue into the city.

Splitting the trip would mean the biggest change for Dart users in Howth since the service was introduced in 1984.

A public information evening was held at the Marine Hotel in Sutton last night and according to the Irish Times some locals expressed their concerns about the changes, with one resident saying their direct service is being sacrificed for Drogheda.
