Irish Rail confirmed earlier this month that work on Woodbrook Station would be starting soon, and it would appear the sod has officially been turned according to a video shared by Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan.
Located right beside the new housing development, it is expected that the station will open in 2025 and will be served by DART services with a 10-minute frequency.
