THE new National Train Control Centre is expected to cost €135m, Transport Minister Shane Ross has confirmed.

Mr Ross said the centre to be located at Heuston Station was described as a "statement of intent" from the government as is sets out to "massively expand rail services in the coming years and look to encourage more people to make the switch to sustainable mobility."

The project is to be delivered by Iarnród Éireann and overseen by the National Transport Authority (NTA) with funding provided as part of the Project Ireland 2040 initiative.

A statement said the centre will underpin both the planned and potential future expansion of rail services across the entire network.

Ms Graham said that it is also proposed that the Garda Dublin Traffic Control Centre and - at a future point - a regional traffic control centre will form part of an integrated facility at Heuston Station.

Iarnród Éireann boss Jim Meade said: "Not only will we deliver new, energy-efficient trains and an enhanced infrastructure for greater frequency of services, the National Train Control Centre will also ensure that this expanded rail service and any future expansions operate efficiently".
