The Government has approved plans to extend DART lines to both Louth and Kildare as part of the National Development Plan, the Irish Mirror is reporting. 

The construction of a motorway to link Limerick and Cork and a second runway at Dublin Airport are also part of the €115 billion Government spending that was approved at Cabinet yesterday. 

The news comes after Irish Rail called for a DART line to link Dublin city centre to the airport. 

The NDP also includes plans for improvements to education and health services with a new National Children’s Hospital and National Maternity Hospital being built as part of the plan.
