NAVAN ROAD PARKWAY STATION AND NEARBY [A RATHER BLEAK LOCATION]
This railway station is on the Dublin - Sligo railway line, located between Ashtown train station and Castleknock railway station.
It opened on 21 January 2008 as 'Phoenix Park' station but was renamed on 25 September 2011 to 'Navan Road Parkway'. The original name caused much confusion especially as many visitors to Dublin were under the impression that it serviced Dublin Zoo in Phoenix Park. The station was built by the developers of the Phoenix Park Racecourse Apartments on the site of the old Phoenix Park Racecourse. It should be noted that the station is further from the Phoenix Park than Ashtown Station.
The station is adjacent to the Navan Road dual carriageway R147 road between the roundabout at the junction of Castleknock Road and Ashtown Road and the roundabout at the junction of Auburn Avenue and New Dunsink Lane. Access to the station is via a grade-separated junction off the R147.
Similar to both Dún Laoghaire railway station and Leixlip Louisa Bridge railway station, the station building is on the bridge that connects the two platforms. From here there are lifts and stairs down to each platform.
The station is served by Western Commuter services. Both main services (westbound to Maynooth and Longford and eastbound to Dublin city centre and Docklands branch services (from Clonsilla to Docklands) call at the station. InterCity services do not call at the station, although one can interchange at either Maynooth or Dublin Connolly railway station.
