Work on Luas Cross City line begins today
A new map of the Luas Cross City line has been released, as well as a brochure now available on the official website. The brochure outlines how the work on the line will progress,
The cost of the project is €368 million, and up to 800 jobs will be created during the construction phase. The first passengers will be on board by the end of 2017. The project will link the two existing Luas lines in the City Centre and will connect Cabra – at Broombridge rail station – to St Stephen’s Green.
There will be 13 stops along the route, including one at the new Dublin Institute of Technology campus at Grangegorman.
In addition to works on Georgian cellars, there will be heritage works, during which monuments and statues are moved and put into storage; utilities diversion works to divert utilities out of the path of the Luas tracks; main instrastructure works; and electrical and mechanical systems works.
