Rail Corridor Cited in Major Economic Announcement For Galway

Press Release 28th November 2006 


The West on Track Community Campaign has welcomed the announcement by CISCO, one of the worlds leading companies, that it is to locate a new euro40 million Research and Development centre in Galway, employing 200 people, and that the imminent development of the Western Rail Corridor (Limerick-Galway-Sligo) was among the key factors in its decision.

A spokesman for West on Track said that the provision of such a prestige development was a major boost for the region and should be viewed as an early indication of the economic benefits that would accrue to the region through the speedy development of the WRC.

Announcing its decision, the leading networking company, which employs 51,000 people globally, told the Connacht Tribune that it was "aware of the progress being made in the Western Rail Corridor".

Almost 12,000 of the global CISCO workforce are engineers who are at the cutting edge of developing products and technology worth $4.1 billion annually.
