In 2011, planning permission was granted to Iarnród Éireann for the construction of a new station on the proposed Western Railway Corridor.[2] However, the proposed project was "not provided for" in Iarnród Éireann's 2013 budget,[3] and by late 2019, the company's CEO said that there was no funding and "no provision for a station" at Crusheen.[4]
