The final phase of the city centre resignalling project, which is Connolly station itself, is due for completion later this year as I understand it.
41 additional intermediate coaches for Intercity railcars (ICRs) are due to start delivery in early 2022 and will then have to be commissioned.
No further stock has yet been ordered but tenders have been invited for DART stock.
The rest of the heavy rail projects (under the umbrella of DART expansion) are only at early planning stage.

With the final section of the resignalling due for completion this year, can we expect any noticeable improvements in the network?

While I don't think it would do much to help with housing shortages, i'd love to see a "higher" speed rail link going cork Belfast via Dublin ,and Dublin airport ,
But while the more stops it makes opens up more start points and destinations ,it slows the train down a lot ...
But if someone wants to 4 track and electrify cork/Dublin same to Belfast ,And stick a few pendalinos on it then happy days. ..

Seeing as the article brought Japan into it, how about copying their bullet train services? 3 types of service using the same tracks and types of trains. The main difference is the number of stations they stop at. The fastest service only at the major cities, the slowest at all the stations.
