Donabate Portrane Community Council has been advised that there will be no significant improvements to the northern commuter rail line until 2021 at the earliest. 

More worryingly, the improvements may not be enough to keep pace with demand in the interim.

Donabate Portrane Community Council is calling on the Minister for Transport Shane Ross and NTA to urgently address the serious congestion and intolerable overcrowding at peak times on commuter services between Dublin and Drogheda.

In particular, the necessary government funding to do this must be earmarked and ring-fenced now.

As Fingal is the fastest growing area in Europe the transport infrastructure must be prioritised to cope with the increasing population. 

An increase in direct express bus services to the city must be provided now in the short to medium term until the northern commuter line's issues are properly addressed and in a sustained way.
