That sounds good, I hope true. Does this depend on the resignalling or can it happen anyway?
A friend of mine works in CTC @ Connolly
He said the system is at capacity both in terms of rail road available and signaling
The System in place was built many moons ago and was never designed to maintain such a high capacity of trains.
They need a 3rd line between grand canal dock and howth junction, that would be an ideal solution (obviously this will never happen)
changing the time tables to improve DART regularity WILL affect other services negatively. their just isn't enough room. the current signaling system according to my mate is a joke. Only 1 train (DART) can be between Connolly and Killester going north bound (which is approx 3.5 Km's of track, kinda ridiculous really)
