Broombridge

I have consistently worked to get Irish Rail to improve their train station at Broombridge. Along with members of the local community, the local Gardai, Dublin City Council and the local youth services I am delighted that Irish Rail recently agreed to work with us to resolve the problems connected to Broombridge Station.  The main issues concern the appearance and the security of the station platform. Irish Rail has agreed to undertake some improvements such as installing new public lighting, the replacing of old dangerous furniture with new more robust furniture and engaging Cabra 4 Youth to design creative art work on the entrance. The RPA are being asked to clear and improve the appearance of the adjacent site they are using for the Luas cross city. Within the coming weeks we should start to see a more attractive looking station. The Gardai have already prosecuted some individuals for criminal activity and a new and upgraded CCTV system should help increase safety at the station. I will continue to work to make Broombridge a train station where everyone feels safe and comfortable to use the train service. Please report any anti-social behaviour in or around Broombridge Train Station by phoning 999.    Mary
