Clondalkin and Fonthill

Clondalkin & Fonthill Station, west Dublin City, is one of the newest stations to be built on the main Dublin to Cork line for the Kildare Route Project, which is upgrading the main line to four tracks between Heuston and Hazelhatch. The station has four platforms, two for the main and commuter lines each. There are also two separate modern elevated booking offices, which are attached to the road overbridge. The station replaces the original Clondalkin Station, which had opened with the line in 1846, closed by CIE in 1946, reopened in 1994, and finally closed and demolished in October 2008. It was located 1km east of the new station. The station buildings at Clondalkin & Fonthill differ with simplification to the newer ones built at Adamstown and Park West & Cherry Orchard.
