Limerick Junction in May 2019, when this new platform for trains from Dublin was still under construction. It will reduce conflicting movements as down trains no longer need to cross to the up platform - and it should enhance reliability on the main Cork - Dublin main line. The platform finally opened on 25th August and took a little over a year to construct after planning permission was granted in June 2018. A little joke in Ireland is that, during the period it took to construct one platform at Limerick Junction, China successfully constructed several thousand kilometres of high speed lines. Limerick Junction originally opened in July 1848.
