Thanks Sulzer201 for posting that, now anyone got any explanation as to why the report took so long,


Most likely the lack of resources up to the setting up of the Railway Safety Commission and Accident Investigation Unit about 10 years ago the Department of Transport employed only one Railway Inspector with very limited powers of enforcement


Completing the report into Dalkey would have been low priority compared to the reports and follow up action in connection with the Buttervant & Cherryville disasters, and possibly Keeping some oversight over the DART, MK3 and major main line re-signalling projects.
