Repairs to Pearse station roof is going to cause massive disruptions to the Dart service this weekend

Alan Fisher

Take note if you’re planning on taking the Dart this weekend.

The roof at Pearse station is undergoing some much-needed repairs which will result in disruption.

According to Irish Rail, ‘the roof structure, which dates from the 1880s, is in poor condition, and protective mesh netting has been in place in the station below roof level in recent years to protect customers and rail services, due to the corrosion which has occurred’.

‘The project will cost €17 million and is funded by the National Transport Authority, and will take place over a period of 23 months’ and although most of the work will not affect the service, this weekend, October 26 and 27, there will be some disruption.

Take note of these changes:

‘DART services will operate on the Northside between Howth or Malahide to Dublin Connolly only, and on the Southside between Bray to Dun Laoghaire only.

No DART services will operate between Dublin Connolly and Dun Laoghaire stations, or between Bray and Greystones.

Tara Street, Pearse, Grand Canal Dock, Lansdowne Road, Sandymount, Sydney Parade, Booterstown, Blackrock, Seapoint and Salthill, and Monkstown Stations will be closed.

Bus transfers will operate between Dublin Connolly and Greystones for Dublin Connolly to Rosslare Europort services.

Dublin Bus and Go Ahead Ireland will accept valid rail passes.’
