Luas Cross City will open for passenger services on Saturday, December 9.

Full services will operate from 2pm, allowing Christmas shoppers and commuters travel from Cabra/Broombridge to the capital's main shopping areas of Henry Street and Grafton Street, before continuing on to Dundrum.

A spokeswoman confirmed that full services would begin in just over four weeks, adding that it would form part of late-night services over the festive season.

"It is being delivered on time and on target and in advance of the Christmas rush, so commuters, businesses and shops can all enjoy Christmas with the new service in place."

Luas Cross City costs €370m and extends the Green Line from Bride's Glen to Cabra.
