Default Oola Bridge Disruption

The level of disruption due to the bridge works at Oola (between Limerick and Lim Jcn) seems extraordinary: 3 full days closure per week for at least 4 weeks.

They were able to replace quite large bridges on the Cork line over a weekend, why not at Oola? On 4 days a week trains are able to run through Oola so it's not as if there is some total demolition of a bridge and abutments.

There was a large new bridge built near Tralee a few yoars ago and to ensure continuity of service they built a temporaty diversion around the site, and this was on a much less busy line.

What's going on? Track works in the Limerick area seem to take forever.
