Question [7/8-11-2009] Major works in connolly pearse area 7th and 8th of Nov?

There is something strange about November 7th and 8th

- Maynooth trains are terminating in Connolly Station

- Northside DARTs are terminating in Connolly Station

- Southside DARTs are terminating in Grand Canal Dock?

- Gorey/Rosslare services are terminating in Bray but there is one afternoon service from Gorey to Maynooth? is this a typo?

The details for the times state "runs on saturday 7 november only" and "runs on sunday 8 november only"

The southside DARTs terminating at GCD is a strange one? presume that is to do with works on the pearse sidings/GCD extra platform?

As for the work in the Connolly Pearse area, is there work happening in that area or is it to do with the pearse siding out of action for the works?

Any ideas?

I'd say you are on to something alright

Probably something going on at Pearse station to do with the works there at the moment

Probably the installation of the new crossover at GCD that's been promised for a while now.
I note it suddenly possible to terminate northbound DART services at GCD, whereas a few months back when the rail maintenance vehicle blocked the line at Pearse, they had to terminate further south?

Sadly nothing to do with the works at Grand Canal Dock

Its either the works under Pearse station or the to do with the new signalling equipment

Its possible to terminate in Grand Canal Dock but its messy to achieve, as you have to use only the southbound platform.

That afternoon Gorey to Maynooth service that was showing up for the 7th November 2009 has now been removed from the online timetable.

Looks like all set for disruption for the 7th and 8th of November allright.

Still no mention though of bus transfers between Connolly and Bray for Gorey/Rosslare passengers?

Done some digging, there are major engineering works planned for Pearse Station on November 7th and 8th

It appears to be related to the works ongoing behind platform 1
