Bus transfers will be in place between Greystones and Bray-Dún Laoghaire-Connolly station for passengers travelling on the Rosslare Europort to Connolly station route.
Next weekend's schedule may also be affected, depending on the progression of repair works. Dublin Bus will accept rail tickets at all times for journeys to and from areas south of Dalkey.
