Christchurch was a planned railway station in Dublin, intended as part of the DART Underground project.

DART Underground[edit]

The station was planned to be one of five underground facilities serving the reconfigured DART services, and located next to Christ Church Cathedral near High Street.

While a Railway Order for the DART Underground was granted by An Bord Pleanála on 15 December 2011, the project was cancelled in September 2015.[1]

Luas Line link[edit]

Other planned projects envisaged the station connected with other proposed Dublin public transport projects - including the proposed Luas Lucan (Line F1) and Luas Liberties (Line F2).[2]
