Luas Red Line returns to full service after temporary city centre closures
Published 03/07/2016 | 12:18
Full service on the Luas Red Line has resumed today following a partial closure to facilitate construction work on the Luas Cross City service.
The company closed seven city centre stops at the end of May, and introduced a replacement bus service travelling between Abbey Street and the Point.
During the closure, the Luas stopped at Jervis, and passengers had to walk to a temporary bus stop on Bachelor’s Walk to continue their journey.
The stops affected, including Abbey Street, Busáras, Connolly, George’s Dock, Mayor Square – NCI, Spencer Dock and the Point, resumed service this morning.
The lines were expected to remain closed until the end of the month, but have re-opened ahead of schedule.
The works on O’Connell Street and Marlborough Street are now finished, and the tram service is fully operational from Tallaght/Saggart to the Point.
“Luas Red Line services are back to normal. Everyone at Luas and the Luas Cross City Project would like to say a big thank you to you for your patience and cooperation during these works,” the company said in a statement.
The Luas Cross City service will connect the Red and Green Luas lines and is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
