Socio-economic and Business Case for Rosslare–Waterford Rail Line, Ireland

Socio-economic and Business Case for Rosslare–Waterford Rail Line, Ireland

The Rosslare-Limerick Junction Railway is approximately 192 km of railway infrastructure linking population centres across the south of Ireland. Due to poor performance, a national report identified the Rosslare-Waterford section of the line for possible closure.

The National Transport Authority invited a submission from the affected regional and local authorities to inform its decision. The South-East Regional Authority therefore commissioned a project team comprising KSA, Imrecon and Fisher Associates, to undertake a comprehensive analysis of the complete Rosslare-Waterford-Limerick rail corridor. This included an in-depth review of all of the relevant policy context, consideration of the socio-economic and business case for an alternative strategy to address the performance issues, and review of the business case submitted by Irish Rail to the NTA.

Fisher Associates role concerned demonstration of the freight and passenger potential of the line through improved linkages with the Port of Rosslare. (2010)
