Any one know if Irish Rail insisted on the new bridge, built as part of the New Ross bypass, being strong enough to carry rail traffic?

I know its unlikely it would ever be needed for rail traffic again but am just curious as to what conditions are enforced.

Given the typical "joined up thinking" in transport policy, I'd guess that it will deliberately be made just about adequate enough to carry a half-full wheelbarrow of feathers......

If you're still spending your confirmation money and elect to use the M6 Toll Road near Birmingham, you might just notice the fully-functional, but empty, new aqueduct, where there hasn't been a canal in living memory.
