Commuters warned about major rail disruptions in Kildare over Easter bank holiday weekend

Sallins Rail Station

Commuters are being warned of major disruptions to rail services in Kildare over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

This is due to the installation of a new bridge at Sallins.

Iarnród Éireann are facilitating works on a new bypass scheme by Kildare County Council.

Some services from Dublin Hueston to Kildare and Newbridge will operate as bus transfers over the period of Friday March 30 (Good Friday) to April 2 (Easter Monday), due to works to install the new precast bridge at Sallins.

Elsewhere, train service will operate between Newbridge and Mallow for Tralee connections. Train services will also operate between Newbridge and Limerick.

Services to and from Heuston from Cork, Limerick and Kerry will operate as a bus service between Heuston and Newbridge and a train service for the remainder of the route.

People should also note that services to and from Heuston from Galway and Waterford will operate as a bus service between Kildare and Hueston.

Heuston Commuter services will operate to an hourly service between Dublin Heuston and Hazelhatch only. Grand Canal Dock services are cancelled.
