Was today the first day in recorded history when there were no accessibility issues at all? Or did they just not bother putting anything on the platform displays?

Default accessibility at Donabate

Since August Fingal Co.Co /IE have been involved in works at the end of turvey avenue in Donabate.

The old carpark exit has been sealed up and a new one opened.
This means that where it was approx 200m from the ticket office to the northbound platform, it is now a journey of 340m for someone unable to navigate the old steps.

Now you have to exit the ticket office, go back out to the road, cross the railway bridge, follow along a path. step onto the road around a metal fence, cross the new road, step up onto footpath,turn right down this new road, step down of fthe footpath,cross this road, step up onto footpath along the new carpark entrance road step down off the footpath and enter the far end of the carpark, walk along carpark to platform gate.

Now in light of the time effort amd money spent making dart stations accessible, the CDE internal door issue, etc, the lack of thought shown here in allowing this to happen is staggering.

I am prepared to accept older stations not having great accesibility on a grandfather rule but to allow this happen in 2006 is incredible.

Default Station building closed

Booterstown is down as not available for mobility impaired because the station building is still shuttered this morning. Free travel - woohoo ! The old bridge (the one they want to take away) is the only access to the platforms.

Above 3 still broken but they rewrote the message text so they are temporally out of service.

The 'lift' in Sandycove is still broken, must be a record but at least they finally got the singular lift right. Of course its on the northbound platform which would be handy to know

Killiney southbound is broke as well now
