Project to upgrade Luas Green Line trams gets the green light

The 26 existing Green Line trams are also to be extended by 12m, increasing their passenger capacity.

Dublin city has been in the process of establishing a cross-city Luas system for the last several years, but it has been reported by the Herald that the increased capacity will only apply to Luas trams on the Green Line.

Only recently has the news been confirmed by Transport Minister Shane Ross, who vouched for the extended carriages for the Green Line.

This is a follow on project from the Luas Cross-City project, which is scheduled to open on December 15th.

THE TRAMS ON the Luas Green Line are set to get bigger, thanks to an investment of around €100 million.

The Cross-City Line will become the Green Line upon completion.

At the end of the Green Line capacity project, this will increase to approximately 8,160 passengers per direction per hour - based on 24 trams per hour. All these initiatives combined will add greatly to the choice and experience of the travelling public and ease congestion in the city.

The move comes after a recent study by the National Transport Authority found that the Green Line is now operating at capacity during peak periods, with crowding experienced between the Balally and Ranelagh stops.

In Sandymount, trams will be parked when not in use.
