Where is the sense in this proposal? What is ironic is that as the Western Rail Corridor is opened the Waterford to Rosslare line is being closed. Waterford has seen many rail lines closed in the past. Once closed they are very rarely re-opened. The closure of this line will have an effect on business, tourism and commuters to Waterford. It will force many commuters traveling from South Wexford to drive and increase traffic congestion. Instead of encouraging and enabling the use of public transport this short sighted decision will do the reverse.
The people of Waterford need to make their voices heard. We must not allow this line to be closed. Every effort must be made to save the line and ensure its future viability. It is ironic that this line is being closed under a so called ‘green’ government. So much for public transport! I strongly believe that a combination of people and political power will see this decision overturned. The people of Waterford and Wexford need to work together. Politicians in Waterford and Wexford need to work together. Just like the air sea rescue service common sense must prevail. The Government must overturn this decision, save the line and ensure its future viability.
