TRACK renewal works are set to commence on the Limerick to Ballybrophy via Nenagh line on Monday, November 1.
The works, which are to improve journey times on the route, will take five weeks and are due for completion on Sunday, December 5.

The works will see a further 3.5 miles of track renewed on the line which, combined with previous works, will facilitate journey time improvements on the line at the next timetable review, planned for the early months of 2022.

As a result of these works, all services on the line will be replaced by bus transfers for the five-week period.

Bus replacements will depart at scheduled train times, except for the 7:45am Nenagh to Limerick service, which will depart at the earlier time of 7:30am, serving Birdhill at 7:51am and Castleconnell at 8:04am.
