Extending rail links for Irish ports
Ireland is to receive EUR 13 million in co-funding for transport projects under the EU’s Connecting Europe Facility. The funding will help to improve transport connectivity and safety and support the development of future transport systems and technologies in Ireland, the Irish Government said.
One of the beneficiaries is Irish Rail, which has been awarded EUR 2.5 million for supporting studies for the development of a railfreight system connecting Ireland’s busiest seaports and establishing transfer points for freight between rail and road.
EUR 3.3 million have been earmarked for Transport Infrastructure Ireland to promote the deployment of technology to enhance road safety. (ben)
