Thanks for pointing that out. I didn't realise that the crossovers where in parallel instead of sequence. They need to move the crossover ... or build Platform 11.

Given the remote nature of the platform,
Not as remote as one might think - thousands of people live right next to it and many more pass right by on the bus.

the limited nature of the service, and the fact that Heuston still has the same level of service as before I don't really see any point.
Where once we had two 'never the twain shall meet' networks* with dysfunctional links, we will now have one (heavy rail) network. Each additional node on the network is worth more than the previous one. The opportunities are vast and the investment needed is modest.

* The splitting of the networks only really happened in the 1980s when Galway services were moved to Heuston.
