Dublin to Navan rail line 'will go ahead'

Transport Minister Noel Dempsey has today insisted that the Dublin to Navan rail line will still go ahead.

However, Minister Dempsey has admitted it will take a number of years before planning permission is granted.

The Government announced yesterday that plans for both the Navan line and the Western Rail Corridor are being shelved.

Minister Dempsey is hopeful that the line will be completed by 2015, however.
