Parking "chaos" at Sallins train station

Sallins train station

Parking woes for commuters from Naas and Sallins using the local rail station have worsened.

Local TD James Lawless  said that the parking facilitates at the station have reached breaking point.

“Pressure on the Irish rail car park at Sallins station has reached breaking point. The closure in the last week of the privately owned Waterways front car park has thrown fuel on the fire of an already very volatile situation.

While it is very welcome that private interests are now pursuing commercial opportunities in the Waterways, this does have repercussions for the station parking as it highlights the scarcity of dedicated commuter spaces,” he said.

He said that while plans for €2m. investment in a major car park extension between the existing car park and the Sallins community centre are welcome “this is still a year away.”
