Deputy Lawless with commuters at Hazelhatch station.

A publication of a draft timetable for rail services which will benefit Hazelhatch commuters in the coming months has gone live. The timetable is now open for public consultation and will close on 19th September.

This is a service I have campaigned for, for many years. Recently I had meetings with the NTA and this was a matter which was brought up. I have also been in constant contact with Irish Rail on this issue.

Examing the draft timetable users from Hazelhatch & Sallins will recieve seven new morning departures and eight new evening departures, all with shorter travel times and more convinent destinations as well. Irish Rail are calling on commuters to submit their feeback and thoughts. If anyone has trouble doing so please dont hesitate to get in touch and I will make their views know to Irish Rail.

If you would like to review the draft timetable you can do so here.

    While I welcome the proposed new timetable I wish to see better connectivity between County Kildare and Galway City on the Heuston Galway route.

    Currently the 0925,1125,1325 and 1445 services ex Heuston to Galway involve very long wait times at Portarlington if connecting from Sallins, Newbridge and Hazelhatch. These wait times are 36 mins, 45 mins, 51 mins and 66 mins respectively – an average of 50 mins waiting in Portarlington station.

    The service travelling the other way from Galway to Heuston is marginally better with wait times of 35mins, 25mins and 29mins in Portarlington off the 1105, 1305 & 1720 ex Galway but no link up off the 1920 ex Galway to Heuston.

    Can this be please reviewed and look into the possibility of at least one of these Heuston Galway services stopping on a daily basis in Sallins & Naas preferably?
