Submission: All-Island Strategic Rail Review Public Consultation
  Our submission on the all Island Strategic Rail Review has focused on the decarbonisation of all Irish rail systems, rail freight and passenger aspects. The primary emphasis of the review has been on how the island's rail network may help with the decarbonisation of the island's transportation systems, increase regional accessibility, encourage sustainable connection into and between key cities, and foster equitable regional development. Therefore, enabling decentralisation, balanced regional development, and a counterweight to Dublin by developing sustainable cities that serve a region and potentially reduce long distance travel. The time period for the plan is from current-2050 with net-zero carbon emissions as one of its major milestones.
