Plans are being made for 270 car parking spaces at Sallins Train Station
13:10 Wednesday 19th of September 2018

Proposals are now in  for hundreds of car parking spaces for Sallins Train Station.

270 new car park spaces are anticipated in what would be a significant extension of the car park at Sallins and Naas train station. The new car park, if planning is approved,  will be located on the Sallins side of the tracks and is subject to planning permission from Kildare County Council.

Deputy James Lawless said: "The extension is badly needed and something I have been working on for years.”

He says that the extension is ‘all the more urgent’ after securing  an extension of the Leap card zone to Sallins which is resulting in  a massive increase in those availing of cheaper fares from the station.

The 270 news spaces are expected to open in 2020.

According to Deputy Lawless  there are currently designers working on the car park plans and pre-planning has begun with Kildare County Council. It is expected that a planning application will be submitted to the council later this year.
