Default progress

I was at the train station in Rush/Lusk last weekend. Massive building activity going on there. It looks like they are building a joined massive car park (trees have been removed and some area has been leveled out to connect the different sections). There is also a new footbridge under construction (with elevators) and new platforms.

With the Malahide Viaduct nearly ready (if it passes inspection...) the pressure is on the get Rush/Lusk train station ready. In the current construction status there will be problems with parking spaces because parts of the old car park are closed up (but if the new car park is ready there will be LOADS of parking spaces ). I will have another look that weekend and try to get some pictures if possible.

Default update

update: a large section of the parking lot is finished. I would say that when the line reopens there should be enough parking spaces even with 20-30% not finished (that is because the overall number of spaces has been largely increased) Its only a matter of clearing the access to the available parking spaces. So thumbs up - It's up to IE to prove me wrong.
The new footbridge will take a while to be finished but the old one is still in place.
