Railway station built three years ago to open

A RAILWAY station completed three years ago will finally open to commuters at the end of the month.

Transport Minister Leo Varadkar will open Hansfield station on June 28, providing a direct rail link to residents of Ongar, Clonee and Mulhuddart into Dublin city centre.

The station, which cost €10m to build, is part of the Hansfield Strategic Development Zone near Blanchardstown, where thousands of new homes are planned.

However, a road allowing access to the station was never built, meaning the station could not open.

The road has since been completed by Iarnrod Eireann at a cost of €1m.

Services will be provided every half-an-hour at peak times for commuters travelling from Hansfield into the capital.
