Work is due to get underway this week on a new €160m commuter rail line serving Dunboyne in Co Meath.

The 7.5km track will branch off the Maynooth line at Clonsilla in west Dublin and terminate at the planned interchange with the M3 at Pace.

A 1,200-space car park will be built at the station, making it the biggest park-and-ride facility in the country.

Iarnród Éireann says the new line should be finished within two years and should provide a new travel alternative to thousands of commuters in Co Meath.
