Draft timetable for the Enterprise to be postponed to allow further review

16 December 2015

Translink and Iarnród Éireann has announced today that following discussions last week, the proposed date for the introduction of a new Enterprise Timetable, planned for 31st January 2016,  has been postponed.
 
The companies will work together to review feedback from timetable consultation processes completed in Iarnród Éireann and underway in Translink prior to finalising a new timetable for the Belfast to Dublin service, with a goal of the first quarter of 2016 for completion.
 
Both companies are committed to delivering an attractive, high quality train service for all Enterprise customers, and last week met to further review the draft timetable proposals and discuss the initial stakeholder and passenger consultation feedback.   A programme of work is under way to consider alternative options for the new cross border timetable. A joint Enterprise Management Board will be set up to look at these options and on an ongoing basis review future plans and developments for the service.
 
The two companies thank everyone who has already taken the time to get in touch regarding the timetable proposals, and Translink invites anyone who has yet to share their views to do so.  Those wishing to register their comments can currently do so at www.translink.co.uk/newenterprisetimetable/
 
Separately, Iarnród Éireann is reviewing feedback from public consultation on other Connolly services, with a view to implementing final schedules on these routes in early 2016, subject to the approval of the National Transport Authority.
 
ENDS
