Yes. To enable a shuttle service to not block a through line.

Anyone have a link to the plans for what exactly is being done at the station?

Guessed as much. Why wasn't it done first time round though? :rolleyes:

The original plan was that this service would be carrying people through to Navan on direct service (and maybe some Tara traffic too) - the double track spec is higher than say Glounthaune-Midleton which is only single track.
The combo of falling demand, the failure to get Hansfield open on day 1 (I know there are various players in that but IE own some blame), the Navan extension delays (again many players including Dempsey and the war over where the line would pass near Dunshaughlin) and the unpopularity of Docklands means the justification for direct service is lower - transferring to Clonsilla will get people to Connolly albeit possibly without the seat they might have had on a direct run.
