Open Kishogue rail station – Sign the online petition!

May 22, 2016  

William has launched a fresh campaign calling on the new Minister for Transport Shane Ross must open the €6.35 million ‘ghost station’ at Kishogue (close to Foxborough, Moy Glas & Griffeen), to tie in with the planned reopening of the Phoenix Park rail tunnel.

The reopening of Phoenix Park tunnel will allow trains from the Kildare line, including Lucan and Adamstown, to travel via Glasnevin Junction to the Connolly, Pearse and Grand Canal Dock stations.

Kishogue station is located on the Outer Ring Road, within a short walking distance of multiple Lucan housing estates, including Foxborough, Moy Glas & Griffeen Glen.

Both Irish Rail and the National Transport Authority have claimed that funding is necessary for works to complete an access road and car-park.

Minister Ross must release the funding to complete the works to the access road and car-park and he must give us a firm commitment that this station will be opened at the same time as the reopening of the Phoenix Park tunnel.
