Default Cork Metropolitan Area Transport Strategy (Draft)

I post this here as there are as there are significant rail components
  • New commuter stations on the lines to Mallow, Midleton and Cobh
  • Double-tracking from Glounethaune to Midleton
  • Frequency increases
  • Electrification of Commuter services
  • A Luas-type light rail within the city


The cynic will say that the stations and frequency increases were in the previous plan and never happened.

I can't personally see the point in double-tracking Midleton. The current arrangement can support up to 4 trains per hour and with two extra stations between Glounethaune and Midleton, it would be easy to create extra passing loops. Double-tracking would be exceedingly disruptive to existing services.
