NEW RAILWAY STATION AT PELLETSTOWN -WHERE IS THAT?
I am willing to bet that you never heard of Pelletstown but the area has attracted much attention as it now has a new train station which I will find useful going forward especially as there is a train every 30 minutes in either direction. At peak times the frequency is higher.
During my visit I photographed both sides of the track and both sides of the Royal canal as well a a public park which I had been unaware of until today. The public park is named Ashington Park and it is described as a green space by Dublin City Council.
Pelletstown railway station is a railway station on the Western Commuter line in the Cabra area of Dublin, Ireland, beside the Royal Canal.
The station was opened on 26 September 2021 by Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan and Tánaiste Leo Varadkar, becoming the first new station to open on the Iarnród Éireann network since Oranmore railway station opened in 2013.
Planning permission was originally granted in 2014, with modified permission approved in 2018. In 2018, Iarnród Éireann stated that construction would begin in 2019, but the groundbreaking did not take place until February 2020.
The station is adjacent to the 8th Lock residential quarter development, owned by German investor Union Investment.
