Default Enfield

I note Meath Co. Co. have granted planning subject to conditions for a footbridge at Enfield. Unfortunately the crap planning system does not appear to give access to the drawings etc. (app no TA111171). Is this just enhanced access or have they a notion of putting a 2nd platform in?

Interesting. The second platform is a little overgrown in parts and would need some (but not massive) attention to bring it up to an useable standard. It is not as long as the platform that is used and appears a little low. Given the signal cabin building on that side is disused (well for signalling purposes in any case) there is a possibility of enhanced access or bringing the platform back into use.

Reads as a full section M footbridge, but with ramps instead of lifts which massively reduces costs

The platform will need a total rebuild as it will be slightly too low and missing tactile paving, lighting and drainage, it will also need to be 170m long. No planing application will be require for that

Will this have any beneficial impact on scheduling to Enfield and further when it is complete?

Short term no impact, but when trains are delayed it means things will move a lot better than before

For Enfield passengers likely to mean several more services

Future timetables will no longer have the restriction at Enfield.

That leaves us with only Millstreet and Clara as the only two odd stations with 1 platform but two tracks

Roscrea?

EDIT: Roscrea seems to have two tracks and two platforms, but only one is usable.
