IRISH RAIL HAS said that there will be no trains between Dalkey and Greystones this Saturday and Sunday as it continues work to fix damage to signalling equipment caused by last week’s fire.

The fire, which occurred in a signalling relay room, has already caused significant disruption to Dart services south of Dalkey, and Dublin-Rosslare train services, since Saturday.

The suspension of services this weekend will allow for repair works and the testing of replacement signalling equipment with a view to returning services to normal on Monday morning.

Irish Rail said that bus transfers will operate between Dublin Connolly and Greystones for all Dublin-Rosslare line services.

As no Darts are operating between Dalkey and Greystones, Dublin Bus will accept rail tickets from customers to/from areas south of Dalkey. It advises customers to use Dublin Bus services from the city centre to/from Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire.

Currently, no services are operating between Greystones and Bray, with bus transfers in place.

A reduced service is operating from Bray to Dalkey in the morning peak and from Dalkey to Bray in the evening peak, at 30 minute intervals.

Irish Rail said it would provide further details in the coming days, and would also advise on its status for Monday services when possible.
