Demand a Commitment to Restore Irish Rail Infrastructure and Stop Investing in Greenways

Dear Minister Eamon Ryan, and members of the Oireachtas,

For the past century, the Irish rail network has been continually degrading from a lack of investment and political will, leaving it only useful for those living in big cities, and far behind what a country in the 21st Century needs. This has lead to an overdependence on car-based infrastructure, and the renovation of railways into greenways. Greenways serve primarily to boost local economies and attract tourists, but they do not fundamentally improve the lives of their local residents in the same way a rail network would. What will your party and government do to fix this?

Why is this important?

You should join this campaign if you are a believer in sustainable public transport, and wish to see Ireland have a rail network for the 21st century, and not continued investment into Greenways.

How it will be delivered

Once the petition has collected enough signatures, a public petition will be delivered to the Oireachtas to trigger a debate on the matter.
