Important news for commuters.
Iarnród Éireann has announced major engineering works to take place at Kent Station, starting on Saturday, October 16th.
The upgrades include a full replacement of the signalling system that covers the Kent Station area, as well as track works in the Cork rail tunnel, Mourneabbey and Rathpeacon.
According to Irish Rail, these changes will “enhance safety, improve performance and allow for future expansion under CMATS investment.”

The 06.15 Cork to Heuston train will also be cancelled for the duration of the works.
