Dart services are delayed by 45 mins after a fault stopped all trains moving

The fault has been fixed but services are now running behind schedule.

DART SERVICES IN Dublin are currently running about 45 minutes behind schedule after a fault that affected all level crossings.

The problem caused all Darts to be stopped on the line with some crossings then manned by Irish Rail workers.

The delays on the Dart line have also led to some knock-on delays to Maynooth commuter services.

The level crossing fault has now been rectified and Darts have resumed moving but delays of up to 45 minutes are to be expected.
