“As committed to in the Irish government’s national planning framework and its national development plan, as well the ‘new decade, new approach’ agreement made by the Irish and British governments to support the full restoration of the institutions of the Good Friday Agreement, it is proposed to conduct a study of rail speeds along the Belfast – Dublin – Cork/Limerick ‘core corridor’,” an Ireland Department of Transport spokesperson told IRJ.
The study will take a strategic view on the potential of “higher” and high-speed rail to support the national planning framework’s strategic outcomes, and will develop high-level design and operational proposals for the TEN-T core corridor.
A procurement competition will be launched in the next few weeks, with the study due to commence by November.
