Progress on Hansfield Station as work to start on access road – Varadkar

 

Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Leo Varadkar has announced further progress for Hansfield Station with work set to start on the vital access road this year.

 

Minister Varadkar said Hansfield Station will finally be able to open to the public when the access road has been completed.

 

“This marks real progress for Hansfield Station, which cannot open for use until a proper access road has been put in place. I look forward to work starting on the road so that the station will finally be able to offer regular services to passengers,” Minister Varadkar said.

 

The development follows the recent transfer of land for the road into public ownership. Irish Rail is currently preparing tenders, with a contractor likely to be selected within a couple of months. Work is due to start on the road later this year.
