Plans for new heritage attraction at Maam Cross

Galway Bay fm newsroom – A decision is due shortly on plans to refurbish a disused railway station in the county to transform it into a heritage attraction.
MGWR 2017 DAC is seeking planning permission to restore the railway station at Maam Cross as an all-weather railway heritage, family tourist attraction.
The project would mean re-building a partly demolished cabin, refurbishment of the Goods Store, loading bank, water tower and passenger platforms.
It would also include re-laying the track as per the original layout.
A decision is due from county planners next month.
