Port of Waterford Freight Train Contract Ceases
Port of Waterford has confirmed that the contract held by DFDS with Irish Rail to operate a freight train between Belview Port and Ballina, Co Mayo ceases today.
As RTE News reports, the Port of Waterford Chief Executive Frank Ronan said they were sorry to see the end of the service.
“It was a nice addition to our portfolio and it was great to be able to provide a port service to stakeholders in the northwest region.
“As the volumes involved were relatively small and likely to be replaced, we do not expect that our throughput of containers will be negatively impacted.
“However, it is a shame to see something that can take trucks off the road and reduce carbon emissions ceasing rather than growing and prospering.
