Consultation on Rail Review 2016

Consultation on Rail Review 2016

The National Transport Authority, along with Iarnród Éireann and the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport Shane Ross, has launched a process of consultation around the Rail Review 2016 Report, which was published today.

The Rail Review examines the network as it currently operates, and analyses the potential of the network to meet national economic, social and environmental objectives into the future.

Rail has a huge role to play as an economic driver in terms of bringing about balanced regional development. It also delivers social benefits by improving social inclusion, improving accessibility and making travel safer. In addition, it provides real environmental benefits by reducing emissions and improving air quality.

But these benefits do not come free of charge, and if safeguarding them is regarded as a genuine priority, there must be a commitment to support our rail network into the future.

The Rail Review looks at the investment required to operate, maintain and develop the network, identifies the funding gap that has arisen, and examines the options around closing that gap.
