Sean Giblin from the P11 Dublin rail committee and DART for Lucan campaign made an excellent presentation on T21, its relevence to Lucan and the potential problems of implenmentation in stages. He discussed the KRP, Luas and Metro West.

As it included much of what I was to discuss, I had to adlib and gave some background info about P11, discussed how diffcult it is to convince IE to implement small projects such as the PPT, the lack of committment to running trains to spencer dock via the PPT and the importance of consulting with existing users and potential users of rail services.

In attendance were representatives of IE (KRP Presentation), the RPA, Dublin Bus, The DTO, South Dublin CC and the Transport Users Group.

Apparently the organisers of this meeting plan to hold it every few months to provide updates. I trust that Sean will fly the flag for Lucan and P11 will assist him in any way.

Default Kildare line

As passengers in Newbridge organise themselves, a public meeting is being planned and its anticipated that P11 will address this meeting in relation to the operation of the Kildare Commuter service. IE representatives are also expected.

More details as we get them.

Thought it appropriate to bump this thread

Keadeen Hotel, Newbridge, on Thursday February 2nd at 8.30pm.

Directions
Proceed from Newbridge mainstreet towards Kildare about 0.5 miles before the junction with the M7 its on the right hand side

And yes yours truely will be on the 18:45 from Heuston heading down, and I'm walking to Heuston from College Green since its faster and more reliable

Newbridge was great evening, great passion, great turnout. I'm sure some of those are reading, so thanks for coming out

So fair play to Regina and her group they have done a fantastic job have got organised. Platform 11 looks forward to working with the NRG in resolving many of the issues that where raised tonight

Next Thursday its looking like Kildare, more later

Good to hear you are on the ground;

that for me is what organisations like P11 are all about i.e. building up a level of expertise and sharing it with those who have an issue but lack the technics to secure it.
