Brian Leddin TD has welcomed plans by Minister Eamon Ryan to progress a rail link to Shannon announced today.

“This has been one of my highest priorities to deliver in Limerick and I’m confident this will prove to be a potential game changer for transport in Limerick”, Deputy Leddin stated.

“For Limerick to grow and prosper we need modern transport infrastructure that will equip us for the future. This is the first step to develop an integrated suburban rail network for Limerick serving Shannon, Moyross, Ballysimon, Castleconnell, Raheen and Adare. We need to make sure that the upcoming Limerick development plan supports the development of high quality and high density housing that will allow the region to grow and prosper sustainably, making sure that everyone has access to education, work and public services”.

“As well as reinforcing Shannon Airport as strategic national infrastructure I have been determined that the government support a sustainable future for the region. I’ll continue to work to push the development of a high-quality suburban rail network for the Mid-West region”
