It gets better Killiney has been fixed but guess what its back up as the lifts in Sandycove, do Irish Rail even know they have ONE lift in Sandycove on the Northbound platform

Edit 16:15 its back as lift now, now if I post here to fix the lift will that work?

As if by magic it now reads

The northbound lift at Sandycove

You wonder why it took 4 weeks to get it right

Northbound lifts at Sandycove and Killiney and Blackrock southbound

If they can't fix a ift what hope do we have?

Edit add Booterstown southbound as well

So Mark, what you're saying is IE come on here, read their incorrect notices and then go and fix the notice instead of the lift? and then break the notice again?

qualidy!

Was the lift at Sandycove added as part of the dart network shutdown works?
Was planning permission applied for this work?
Does the development meet part M of the planning regulations with no working lift??

What "county" is Sandycove station in? and do they have planing applications online?

Sandycove was done under the planning exemption since there is no filed planning application, its DLRCC's turf
The works conducted are within section M specification
Wheelchair access is still maintained via a ramp on the northbound platform, ramp is however too steep under Section M

Unless you know Sandycove you won't understand the unique case it is

I suppose they will change it back to lifts now just to bug me and see how long before I spot it

Here we go again

The lifts at Sandycove and Pearse are ....

What it should say

The southbound lift at Pearse and the northbound lift at Sandycove are out of order since Iarnrod Eireann are too cheap to have a service contract

Sandycove, Glenageary and Laytown all have broken lifts, of course Irish Rail won't tell you which lifts specifically

P6/7 were out when I was getting on at R&L at 7:58 yet didn't appear on the PIS at Portmarnock a few minutes later.

How are you meant to know what platform you'll arrive at in Connolly anyway?

The lifts in Sandycove are our of order

Of course there is only one lift in Sandycove, thus in about say 2 hours it will change to read

The northbound lift at Sandycove is f*****d and will be broken on a non temporary basis until we figure out where the lift is
