Northern Ireland Railway

During 1991-92, DSC prepared a series of impact forecast in relation to schemes for improvement of the railway network in Northern Ireland. These studies provided essential demand, revenue and benefit inputs to appraisal carried out by TecnEcon with a view to European funding. The schemes included:

  • the Belfast Cross-harbour Rail Link (subsequently approved; opened in 1994);
  • proposals for a new station on the link, at Donegall Quay;
  • reopening of the Antrim - Bleach Green Line;
  • improvement of the Belfast - Larne and Belfast - Dublin routes.

In 1997, DSC contributed to projects led by ERM Economics involving post-project evaluation of the Cross-harbour Rail Link project and further work on the Antrim - Bleach Green reopening (now under construction).
